2017 Fall Clean up

It seems like the summer has gone by in the blink of an eye and autumn is just weeks away. While the Escarpment Project is involved in small less publicized clean ups throughout the year we have had a lot of requests over the last couple of years to add an annual fall clean up […]

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 […]

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.

For 2017 the […]

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 […]
