The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup

posted in: News | 0

The Communities in Bloom committee of Bluewater promotes a shoreline cleanup as part of the larger effort called the The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. This is the sixth year. In our second year we covered 9 km of shoreline.. Increasingly high water levels makes the cleanup smaller and more difficult.

We are all aware of the problems created by plastics in our oceans and lakes. Removing plastic while we can still see it reduces the overall problem on Lake Huron. This is also an opportunity to remove tires, gabion wire, drainage pipe and lumber debris.

This year’s cleanup will take place before May 27. Some of you cleanup without joining. Without a large item pickup again this year, you may need some help. You must contact Harlie Johnston to arrange pickup.
If you are interested in assisting please contact Harlie Johnston, hgjohnst@gmail.com
