SEGUIN TWP. - Seguin Township and Humphrey Public School will band together to fight shoreline litter in the first annual Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup adopting green practices to keep our lakes clean Thursday.
The crew will join thousands of Canadians in cleaning up shorelines across the Country. It is the largest direct action conservation program in Canada.
This year’s Shoreline Cleanup runs September 15-23. Humphrey Public School grades 4 to 8 and Seguin Township will participate on Thursday, September 20 at the following locations: Foley Matheson Beach 9:30a.m.; Rosseau Waterfront Park 9:30a.m.; Maple Key Beach (Orrville) 9:30 a.m.
“As an environment first municipality, we pride ourselves as being stewards of our lake quality and shoreline character and this event exerts that importance,” said Seguin Mayor David Conn. “We are certainly pleased with the participation of our young people in this initiative and look forward in working together implementing more green practices to keep our lakes clean.”
Each litter item is recorded by a designated data collector and all results will be submitted to the Shoreline Cleanup website.
