Beach clean up 2-6.may

Volunteers for Beach clean 2018

Hamn want to focus on helping to protect the environment and the nature around us. There is unfortunately a lot of garbage in the sea and on the beaches, floating in from the sea. We are few people who live out here, and there’s a lot to work to clean all the beache and we do not have the capacity to clear it all away. Therefore, we need help, and we invite you to volunteer to come here and help us. We will also be working on improving the paths for hiking. In the summer there is a huge increase in the number of hikers, but the paths are not prepared for as many people. We want to be proactive and make necessary improvements and enhancements to accommodate increasing number of guests who want to experience nature with us, so that we reduce the future wear.
