We have had an amazing response from people like you who want to help keep our natural areas clean. In just 3 weeks since starting this campaign we have run out of supplies. We are working on getting more in so please check back with us later. Thank you!!

Clean-up 2021

Since the onset of Covid more and more people are turning to the trails to get peace of mind. That’s what happens when you get closer to nature. Unfortunately many people leave their footprint in the way of litter so we at the Escarpment Project have come up with a way to social distance and keep nature clean. Details are forthcoming so check back in shortly.

The Escarpment Project even provides a great out-door, fun opportunity for students to complete community service hours. This is a perfect way to gather the hours needed to put towards the volunteer requirement to graduate high school.

Thank you for wanting to Get Involved!

New Horizons

The Escarpment Project is continually expanding the number of clean-up sites each year. In the Spring of 2012 it began with Devil’s Punchbowl, followed by Albion and Buttermilk Falls in midsummer. The following spring saw the addition of new locations; Chedoke Radial Trail, Stairs & Falls area, Kenilworth Rail Trail & Stairs, Felkers Falls and Ancaster Creek at Powers Crossing in Dundas. In 2014 two new locations were added; Wentworth Stairs & Access Trails, as well as the Bruce Trail in Dundas near Sydenham Falls. In 2015 we added a location on the Red Hill Valley Trail at the King St and Lawrence area. We are constantly on the lookout for new locations as we expand our clean-up across the escarpment. If you have any suggestions for an area feel free to pass the location along to us for consideration for our next clean-up initiative. Please also send photos of the area.

Be a Leader in Your Community

Being a leader in your community is very rewarding not just for you but for others around you. It inspires people to get active and sets a great example for others to follow.  Contributing to a healthier environment for future generations is very honourable and you can see the difference you make on the environment immediately.

If the escarpment runs through your city and you would like to become a team leader and start this project in your community click here and let us know. It’s a lot of fun and very rewarding. It can be quite a bit of work but well worth it in the end.
