With 60 days until the annual Escarpment Project we thought we would let you know how preparations are going for this year’s annual spring clean up and BBQ.
Great! We have been collaborating with several environmental groups and are expanding to include parts of Halton region this year; specifically the Sheldon Creek area. We will have that location posted on our website as soon as final details have been arranged so residents of Halton Region can sign up for an area closer to their homes. We have also added new areas in Hamilton including the Bruce Trail that passes by Sam Lawrence Park from the Wentworth Stairs.
Mohawk College is also joining us again this year to help clean up a couple locations. The annual clean up is a great platform for businesses, schools and teams to give back to the environment and show they care by sporting their logo/colours on their shirts in front of hundreds of others that also care about the environment. We are expecting many fantastic teams to show up.
This year’s clean up is on Saturday April 21st starting at 10am. Visit our website for clean up locations. As per usual, after the clean up there will be a volunteer appreciation BBQ.
Rain barrel sales will begin online on March 22. Order yours from rainbarrel.ca and pick them up at the BBQ at Punchbowl Market between 11 and 3 on clean up day – Saturday April 21 2018.
We also welcome back some of our previous years’ BBQ sponsors, Maple Leaf Foods, Cogeco, McMaster Innovation Park, Piller, Muskoka Brewery and Starbucks Coffee. We also welcome a new food sponsor; Camino hot chocolate.
Several of Hamilton’s councillors are also supporting The Escarpment Project again this year; Tom Jackson, Sam Merulla, Doug Conley, Donna Skelly and Chad Collins. We look forward to having these councillors join us with their volunteer teams.
