We receive the YMCA Peace Medal
Divers for Cleaner Lakes and Oceans is grateful to have been nominated and received the YMCA Vancouver Peace Medallion for Outstanding Contribution as a Social Change Leader. Our dive group managed to remove 2,240.2 lbs of garbage from our waters in 2017, bringing our total to 22,793.8 lbs since we started this little project four years ago.
I would like to thank all of our divers, helpers and contributors for their dedication to our environment, and also like to thank Jonathan Martin for kickstarting this project with me. Without his request to dive a freshwater lake, we may never have known or realized the amount of garbage that is in our local waters.
