The 2015 clean-up takes place on Sunday April 26 at 11 AM.
The Escarpment Project was started on Sept 14 2011 and quickly erupted to become the largest volunteer environmental clean up in Hamilton and one of the largest of its kind in Canada. People of all ages gather at various locations along the escarpment in Hamilton to revitalize the forest and help return it to its natural splendor by removing litter & debris that has been dumped and left there, in some cases for years and even decades.
During the last clean-up (Sunday April 27, 2014) over 400 volunteers removed over 700 bags of litter plus furniture, car parts, bikes, shopping carts, computers, TVs and more. What people find most surprising is how fun and rewarding it is to help out the environment in this way.
If you would like to volunteer for next year let us know. It takes place Sunday, April 26 2015 at 11AM. If there is an area of interest you would like to work on tell us.
Students are able to get community service hours for helping. Click for more info.
People can do many things including: Clean up litter, help hand out supplies, hike and video tape the clean up. You can stay and help for as long or short of a time as you like. All help is appreciated. Even if you just come for moral support. If you will be video taping please just email us the footage you would like us to use in the clean up documentary or put it on a USB stick and allow us to copy it. We will return the USB stick.
