Call For The Expansion Of Eco Dive

Posted on Sunday, June 18, 2017 07:31 AM

An award winning environmental program in Sioux Lookout is looking to expand.

Chuck Abela is with the Patricia Pelican Scuba Club and he would like to see other communities host an Eco Dive.

The yearly tradition sees local divers and volunteers hit the lake to remove garbage from the water and the shoreline.

Abela says his club is always willing to lend a helping hand.

Abela stresses he would love to see Dryden adopt the clean-up and is issuing a challenge to local divers.

The event originated in Thunder Bay and there is also an Eco Dive in Nipigon.
