The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup

Hello there folks!

We haven’t disappeared yet- in fact, you’re just in time for our first event of the 2012-2013 year!

This September 22nd, join us and the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup to clean up Parc Wilcox in Montreal’s Verdun neighborhood!

With humble beginnings in 1994 with the Vancouver Aquarium, The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup has since become an official national program for a decade, with thousands of volunteers offering their time to help clean up local communities. Since then, they’ve partnered with WWF Canada to become a real force in the International Coastal Cleanup movement in Canada.

Check out their Facebook page here, or simply join The Conservationists at Roddick Gates at 10am. You can even register here, and check out the details! Bring gloves and other supplies if you want to stay fresh and clean! We’ll be heading out together to the destination via Metro.
