City to hold shore clean up

  • Sep. 7, 2011 4:28 p.m.

Help clean up the shores along the Red Deer River as part of the Great Canadian Shoreline Clean-up.

The event takes place Sept. 11 from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. It runs at the Kerry Wood Nature Centre.

“The annual Great Canadian Shoreline Clean-up is a piece of the Green Deer puzzle that encourages people to clean near the river, which is such an important part of our City,” said Suzanne Jubb, the City’s community and program facilitator. “Since Green Deer began in April, we’ve seen positive results throughout the City. As the litter disappears, we really appreciate how beautiful our community is.”

Participants are invited to a free barbeque after the event. All participants will be entered in a draw for a $150 gift certificate from NOVA.

“The more people who help out, the more area we can cover,” said Jubb. “The river clean-up is a great way for families, clubs and other organizations to get involved in keeping Red Deer clean and beautiful.”

Pre-registration is not required, but residents are asked to arrive promptly at 12:30 p.m. to receive their cleaning supplies and to be assigned a specific area of the riverbank to clean. Participants should wear appropriate footwear and bring gloves. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
