Bronte Creek

Location: Day use gate and Campground main parking lot.
Event Type:
Description:

Just like spring cleaning - only this time we are getting the park ready to go to sleep for the winter.  After a busy summer season the trails, ditches and waterways have collected debris - which is unsightly as well as dangerous to wildlife.  Volunteer today to do your part to clean up!

Sign up on Great Canadian Shoreline Clean up. Entry fee will be waived to participants who sign up.

As litter is picked up -- we will tally the items and enter the weight.  We will then get a sense of what is the most common litter items etc.  This information will go into Ontario's total -- hoping each year to see an improvement.
