Spring Cleanup


 

 Want to do something for your neighborhood? Why not adopt a park!

What do I need to do?

Choose an area that you are familiar with, this may include a playground, park, green space, boulevard or ditch.  Organize a group of your friends, neighbours, or family to do a weekly clean-up of the area of your choice for the duration of the summer.  Depending on the area, one clean up per week should keep your park neat and tidy.
