Schinias Beach Cleanup: Sunday, April 25th 2010

In honour of Earth Day, the Friends of Schinias are participating in a cleaning of the National Forest of Marathon-Schinias on Sunday, April 25th, 2010.

This event occurs within the framework of a wider volunteer initiative launched bv the Hellenic Ministry of Environment, Energy and Climate Change named Green Action – Clean Action volunteer campaign, and the National Park of Schinias-Marathon is one of the two regions in Greece chosen to pilot the campaign.

As a result, we hope for a high turnout on Sunday, to help clean areas of the forest which we have not been able to access before. We will be working with Elix, a company with long experience in volunteering activities, has been chosen by the Ministry to coordinate the event.

We will be meeting at 09:30-10:00 at the parking lot of the Olympic Rowing Centre, and will clean from 10:00 – 13:00. A picnic lunch will follow at 13:00.

Please remember to bring:

a. A hat and long-sleeve shirt or jacket and mosquito repellent

b. Water to drink

c. Food to contribute to the picnic, if you will participate.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday, April 25th!
