It is with regret the Escarpment Project annual clean up will be taking this year off
NATURE. OUR HOME. OUR RESPONSIBILITY.
The Escarpment Project Annual Clean-up takes place in April each year.
The Escarpment Project is a not-for-profit organization that provides remediation and stewardship of the Niagara Escarpment. Each April people of all ages gather at various locations along the escarpment to revitalize the forest and help return it to its natural splendour by removing litter & debris that has been dumped and left there, in some cases for years and even decades. We are always looking to partner with other organizations, teams, schools or businesses to increase our effectiveness. If you would like to partner with us in an area you are interested in revitalizing please let us know.
During our annual clean-ups hundreds of volunteers help remove hundreds of bags of litter plus furniture, car parts, bikes, shopping carts, computers, TVs and more. Afterwards we all gather to celebrate a great clean up effort which makes the event even more fun and rewarding. Watch the video: Escarpment Project Clean-Up Video 2019
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 or even help at the BBQ. 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.
If you would like to take part please click here and let us know.
