In honour of Earth Day on April 22nd, a Youth Group from the Wellington Street Pentecostal Church in Bracebridge contacted us looking to help out and get their hands dirty! The Upjohn Nature Reserve has been in need of a roadside cleanup for the last few years, and we thought this would be a perfect project.
Within a couple of hours on Earth Day, the group, had hauled about 8 bags of garbage, in addition to mattresses, a freezer, tires, and other large items to the roadside for pickup. Talk about productive!
We registered our cleanup with the District of Muskoka and were able to take three full trailer loads of waste to the landfill at no cost.
We are so pleased to have this cleanup complete and to see the Upjohn Nature Reserve looking natural once again.
Thank you to the Youth Group for their wonderful initiative in helping us continue to protect natural spaces in Muskoka!
