9:30 - 11:30 a.m.

FRIENDS of the San Juans invites you to help clean up South Beach as part of the 5th Annual GREAT Island Clean-up – San Juan Island’s spring cleaning!

Past years' clean-ups have removed 100's of pounds of marine debris from local beaches. Marine debris is a big environmental problem. Fishing nets and six-pack holders trap fish and other marine creatures; animals and birds mistake trash for food and choke on the plastic and paper; and floating garbage fouls our beaches.

We’ll also have FRIENDS staff on hand to tell you about current issues facing our marine ecosystem and how you can join additional efforts to keep the Salish Sea a healthy place for people and wildlife.

For more information call: Jana Marks 360-378-2319 or Email: jana@sanjuans.org

Folks are encouraged to bring day packs, water, lunches, snacks and dress for the ever changing weather. We will provide gloves, trash bags and other supplies. We'll gather all our trash and beach litter, share interesting stories of treasures found, snap lots of photos, mosey our way to the Lopez Dump and celebrate our success at the Procession of the Species Parade 3:00 pm, Lopez Community Center.

Roadsides and beaches on Orcas & San Juan Islands

In the 2014 Great Island Clean-Up, over 250 people collected about 6250 pounds of litter from the roadsides and beaches of San Juan and Orcas Islands, and how wonderful everything looked! But sadly, a portion of our refuse continues to end up as litter. Thoughtless tossing of bottles, cans, food wrappers, or cigarette butts; accidental “blowing away” of debris from unsecured loads on boats and trucks; or deliberate dumping of tires, etc., all contribute to the need to make litter pick-up an ongoing effort.

Islanders and visitors alike are invited to join in the fun and help give both San Juan and Orcas their annual spring cleaning! Litter-picker-uppers can work as individuals, families, or as part of a larger group. On San Juan Island, David Dehlendorf is coordinating the roadside pick-ups (he can be reached at 360-378-1082 or dauffa@gmail.com); and Jana Marks is coordinating the beach clean-ups (she can be reached at 360-378-2319 or jana@sanjuans.org). Kira Bradshaw is organizing all the clean-up activities on Orcas Island; she can be reached at 360-317-8160 or kirabradshaw72@gmail.com.

We hope you will want to participate this year in making us “litter-free by the sea”!

7:00 p.m.

The Barefoot Bandit tells the almost unbelievable tale of the life and capture of Northwest native Colton Harris-Moore, following his legendary two-year international crime spree (which included exploits in the San Juans) that captured the imagination of the public and press around the nation.

The film explores the dynamics of Harris-Moore’s family as well as his personal exploration and growth. The teenage boy who camped in the woods and, wearing no shoes, broke into vacation homes, became obsessed with airplanes. His dream of flying and designing airplanes became a reality when he ran away from a halfway house at the age of 15 and stole the first of five airplanes. He survived several crash landings while flying across the U.S. and eventually ended up in the Bahamas, where he was arrested.  Colton’s captor, lawyer, mother and the FBI team that hunted him for two years, as well as others involved in this real-life drama, tell the truly amazing story of “The Barefoot Bandit.”

Running time:  74 minutes
