A Greener Future - Hamilton Beach Nurdle Hunt

Come join us for the Hamilton Beach Nurdle Hunt, a fun-filled event for all ages! On Saturday, October 7, 2023, starting at 10:00 AM, we'll be gathering at Hamilton Beach A.

What are nurdles, you ask? Nurdles are small plastic pellets (about the size of a lentil) used by the manufacturing industry to make new plastic products, everything from phone cases to plastic bags are made of nurdles. Small and lightweight, these pellets can easily spill throughout the plastic supply chain and be lost in the environment. Nurdles can cause harm to aquatic life when they are mistaken for food and also contaminate our drinking water with microplastic pieces. They are difficult to clean up from the environment, which is why we need your help!

Together, we'll clean up the beach and search for these pesky nurdles. It's a great opportunity to make a positive impact on our environment while enjoying beautiful Hamilton Beach.

Bring your friends and family, and let's make a difference! Don't forget to wear comfortable clothes and shoes, and bring your enthusiasm. We'll provide all the necessary equipment for the hunt. This event is a fantastic chance to connect with like-minded individuals and contribute to the preservation of our precious coastal ecosystem.

Join us at the Hamilton Beach Nurdle Hunt and be part of the solution!

High school community service hours may be earned through this opportunity.

Note: Nurdle hunting requires kneeling and bending to scoop and sift through the sand at ground level.
