The Nevis Historical and Conservation Society (NHCS) will be hosting its 28th Annual Coastal Clean-up on Saturday, September 26, 2020. This island-wide volunteer activity will run from approximately 6:00 a.m. to noon at various locations along throughout the island. Volunteers from school, church and community groups will clean litter from shorelines and adjoining areas in an effort to reduce the amount of harmful debris entering the sea.

This year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic the event has been scaled down from previous years. All participating groups are restricted to 10 persons or less. Group captains will be required to orient their teams on the required Covid-19 health protocols which are being provided by the NHCS and must ensure that these are adhered to during the event. In addition, the picnic lunch for participants which traditionally follows the cleanup has been cancelled.
