Most participants have come to know that the Escarpment Project holds an annual clean-up across the escarpment in Hamilton on the last Sunday of each April. This year due a higher volume of traffic and unfortunately greater amount of litter along the trail and creek systems in Dundas we are holding an interim clean-up in just a couple of weeks on Saturday, November 28 starting at 10 AM. During this interim clean-up our focus will be on removing mainly coffee cups, water bottles and pop cans in a couple of problem areas near Sydenham, Tews and Websters Falls. As with our annual clean-up we will be supplying gloves and garbage bags. If you are interested in helping clean up please let us know by signing up at our website https://escarpmentproject.ca/interim-dundas-cleanup/ and we will send you meeting location details.
The team leader for this clean-up is Ine Wauben who has been an Escarpment Project team leader for several years in this area. She is also a member of the Hamilton Conservation Foundation.
