Annual Clean Up Day May 5!

Want to find out how many great parks, walking paths, woods, streams and places Beaverbook has to share with you the residents of Beaverbrook. Come on out with your friends, children and neighbours to discover these areas while making it more beautiful and ready to enjoy for the great month’s to come.

The KBCA will be organizing the annual clean up day on Saturday May 5 (rain date May 12) from 9:00am to 1:00pm.

For the last 10 years, local residents have filled garbage bags, removed tires, plastic chairs, broken planks of wood from the parks streams and woods that make this a beautiful place we all call home.

We want you to have fun and we’re hoping for another great turn-out again this year.

A BBQ will be offered, starting at 11:30 to 1 PM.  There will be fun activities for teens and kids as well as prizes, courtesy of one of our local artists, "Barcha Pottery".

We’ll give you the bags and gloves to wear. We’ll help you form teams and provide maps of where to pick up the litter and where to drop off the full garbage bags.  Long pants, sturdy shoes or boots and hopefully you might need some sun screen too.

Watch for the big sign at the corner of Teron and Campeau.

High school students can earn 4 hours of community volunteer hours.

This event is part of the City of Ottawa’s “Spring Clean the Capital” campaign.
