 Take part in a Waterfront Walkabout!

 

Litter is a serious pollution issue that affects our waterways. It has been estimated that around 7 million tonnes of litter enter the world’s oceans each year.  A staggering 80 per cent of the litter in the Great Lakes is plastic. This pollution is threatening the health of the Great Lakes ecosystem and the source of drinking water for 40 million people.

 

You can participate in a Waterfront Walkabout and help us remove and document plastics from our waterways!  You can walk the shoreline or join us by paddling alongside! All volunteers will receive free clean-up supplies, survey sheets and safety tips. Please bring rubber boots and/or waders if you have them.
