Registration Deadline: Thursday, SEPTEMBER 17 (register early to avoid disappointment!)Are you excited for this year's Inglewood River Cleanup?
We can't wait for this fun family event, and we want YOU to be involved again this year!
Since 1967, Calgary has been cleaning up the pathways and river around various communities to remove all litter and debris after the winter snow melt.
That means we're celebrating the 53rd Anniversary this year! Congratulations Calgary and all the awesome volunteers throughout the years! We have Sandra Crawford to thank for creating this amazing initiative back when she was ONLY 12 years old!
Clean up will go from 10 am to 1 pm, followed a Volunteer Appreciation BBQ event at the Inglewood Community Hall (1740 24 Ave SE) from 1 - 3pm for registered volunteers.
Note: Spots are limited to registrants only for the post-clean up BBQ
When registering, please select the location you would like to clean up. There will be 6 groups of volunteers in the locations listed below:
1. Bow River South Bank West - West of Zoo Bridge
2. Bow River South Bank East - East of Zoo Bridge
3. Nellie Breen Park (child friendly)
4. Colonel Walker School (child friendly)
5. Wildlands - beside Tennis Courts located on 9th Ave (child friendly)
6. Bow River - West Bank - South of 17th Ave Bridge
Please consider offering to be a Group Leader when you register. It is a very easy job and is a good way to get to know the other people in your group.
Every year, we are grateful to have amazing sponsors that allow us to make this event more enjoyable. Thank you so much for your generosity :-)
And thank you to the local musicians who perform at the BBQ, to the volunteers who organize this event and those who help behind the scenes and to the Inglewood Community Association for hosting the BBQ event.
Remember to hashtag #yyccleans to follow the other volunteers throughout the city who are cleaning up their part of the river too.
Thank you and see you all soon,
Gordon, Jen & Rick
