Family Oceans Day!

Come join us for a fun, ocean-themed event at Alderney Landing, featuring a mobile aquarium!

Clean Foundation is partnering with the Vancouver Aquarium’s AquaVan, a travelling aquarium filled with sea creatures, to host its only mainland Nova Scotia stop on its first-ever cross-country tour in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday!

We will also have lots of fun activities, including a shoreline litter cleanup with prizes and treats, a contest to name one of our reef balls going in the harbour this summer, and hands-on learning about the ocean in our backyard!

We will also be partnering with the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup and the Great Nova Scotia Pick-Me-Up to host a litter clean-up of the Dartmouth Waterfront, with prizes and treats for clean-up participants.

For more information, or to volunteer to participate in the clean-up, please contact Erin Burbidge at or (902) 420-8832.
