Cascadian Crusaders launch children’s book

The Cascadian Crusaders launch their new children's book The Great Plastic Round-Up in Courtenay and Cumberland this weekend.

The Cascadian Crusaders launch their new children’s book The Great Plastic Round-Up in Courtenay and Cumberland this weekend.

On Saturday, they will bring the vividly painted Ocean Outreach Book Bus to the Comox Valley Art Gallery from noon too 1:45, then to the opening of the new Cumberland Library from 2 to 4.

The Cascadian Crusaders are a local non-profit society committed to ocean awareness through creative education. They aim to inspire children to care for and about the health of the world’s oceans.

The new book is a beautifully illustrated tale of one girl’s quest to tackle the huge patch of garbage swirling around the Pacific Ocean.

The Cascadian Crusader’s Book Bus is a 30-foot van packed with inspiration and activities and painted in a stunning wraparound mural featuring the ocean life of the Pacific Northwest.

On Saturday, children can participate by identifying the ocean creatures on the bus, taking photos with the ocean mural and learning about the importance of keeping plastic out of our waterways.
