2017 Earth Day Cleanup




Shrewsbury Heron Rookery



On Saturday April 22nd, 8am, the Shrewbury Community Association in partnership with the Rondeau Bay Waterfowlers will host the 5th annual Town Wide and Bay Wide, Earth Day Cleanup and Celebration. Everyone is welcome.

Participants are asked gather at the Shrewbury Community Center on 112 New Scotland line 8am where free coffee and hot cider will be served and directions provided as well as gloves, bags and safety jackets.
Afterwards, along with a hearty brunch of Pancakes, Canadian Sausage and Shrewsbury Maple Syrup, volunteers will be offered a free potted, Eastern White Pine, the Provincial tree of Ontario along with planting instructions. Commemorate Canada's 150th birthday by planting a tree that can live for over 300 years!

The bay-wide cleanup is continued from a legacy of partnerships between the Rondeau Watershed Coalition, Rondeau Bay Waterfowlers, Red Devil Dive Club, the LTVCA, Parks Ontario and many local business and volunteers.  Between 1995 and 2003 over 20 tons of metal and trash was pulled from Rondeau Bay by hundreds of enthusiastic volunteers.

Today the Rondeau Bay Waterfowlers and Bayside residents continue to keep Rondeau Bay and our communities as clean as they can be.

Did you know that wetlands prevent the growth of algae, trap silt and nutrients, provide spawning beds for fish and clean the water?  All that for free!

Join us, on Earth Day, April 22nd.
