Winter 2020/21

Membership of Strandliners

Becoming a member of Strandliners gives you an exciting opportunity to join with other volunteers doing something about the increasing level of plastic pollution that harms wildlife and mars our beautiful beaches and river banks.

More than 60 people have now signed up as members, taking advantage of benefits such as our quarterly online magazine, The Fulmar (see below), early-bird sign ups to the Winter Workshops and other events and activities – which will resume as soon as C-19 restrictions are eased. (Eligibility for online training plus a members’ portal on our website with exclusive access to information.)

Additionally, by joining you will help raise funds to develop our area of work and the events Strandliners holds, monitoring and recording plastic pollution in our communities.

We’d love to have you on board! Please click the link below for more information (or click here)
