Public Input Regarding Escarpment and Waterfall Safety Measures

Every few weeks it seems like we hear a story about how someone needed to be rescued from the escarpment somewhere in Hamilton. In recent weeks there have been 6 such rescues with the majority being at Albion Falls. (You can read more on that here.) In light of these events the City of Hamilton is […]

April Awesomeness

Wow!! is the easiest way to describe it. The 2017 Escarpment Project clean up and BBQ/Festival will definitely go down in history as one of the most memorable. After an early morning thunderstorm it was debatable whether or not the event would even take place. Add to the mix some frigid April temperatures and high winds […]

Less than 1 Week

With less than 7 days until The Escarpment Project annual clean up we wanted to inform you of the positive things that have been happening. The number of volunteers who have signed up this year has already surpassed the number from last year. We’re stoked! There has been such positive success in both volunteer turnout and […]

4 B’s of Recycling

You’ve heard of the 3 R’s of recycling (reduce reuse recycle) but have you heard of the 4 B’s of recycling. We made them up because, “Who says helping the environment can’t be fun?” In 2016 the Escarpment Project’s Volunteer Appreciation BBQ was so large that we decided to turn it into a festival. For 2017 the […]

Call for Vendors

The volunteer appreciation BBQ has grown so large that we have had to get sponors and turn it into a small festival. It is now also the Nestle Waters Escarpment Festival. Attendees can purchase a […]

Clean up at Glendale Falls

After taking a stroll through the Glendale Falls area recently and finding some interesting pieces of litter and the usual tires, furniture and other debris, we have decided to do a small clean up at Glendale Falls on Sunday Feb 26th starting at 1pm. Ten good people is likely the most it will take. Garbage […]

Help the Earth

If you are interested in doing what could be the most fulfilling and rewarding thing you do all year then perhaps you would like to be a team leader for the Escarpment Project. With less than 90 days until the annual Escarpment Project clean up, the Escarpment Project is looking for volunteers who are interested […]

Seasons Greetings from The Escarpment Project

Thanks to your help and the help of hundreds of volunteers, The Escarpment Project saw a record breaking number of volunteers join forces in 2016 to help create a healthier, cleaner environment for people, animals and […]

Gearing Up for Another Season

Our annual clean up in 2016 was mammoth with over 800 volunteers taking part. We are already expecting another massive turnout of volunteers to support us with new escarpment locations to […]
