It's Time to SPRING into Action!
The arrival of spring uncovers a menace to our community that has been hidden underneath the winter’s snow. Litter! As months of snow melt away, a staggering amount of litter is revealed on our city streets and in our parks. Luckily, with spring comes another yearly event – Spring Up to Clean Up! Each year, over 10, 000 registered volunteers help to clean up and beautify Thunder Bay by picking up litter from streets and parks during the month of May.
This year's event is bigger and better than ever!
