Organize a shoreline cleanup with your park group
January 26, 2018
Organizing a shoreline cleanup is an easy first event for a park group, and many long-term groups do cleanups every year. Your shoreline cleanup won’t just reduce pollution that reaches our lakes and oceans – it will also help you build relationships and foster community pride. Also, you’ll help raise awareness of the major sources of litter in your community by keeping a record of what you collect. By leading cleanups, you can be part of the solution. The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is a conservation partnership by Ocean Wise and WWF-Canada. They offer support to anyone who would like to coordinate a shoreline cleanup, including free promotional templates, guides, checklists, profile and national litter data tracking. Here’s there advice to park groups interested in leveraging people power to make our waters cleaner.
