Same Day in Rossport as Around the World

What do an oil drum, a water gun, and nurdles all have in common? They were all found at last year’s International Coastal Clean-up! Join Parks Canada and local volunteers at Wardrope Park in Rossport, ON from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM on September 15th to help clean up the shores of our Great Lake. Be a part of the international event that is happening all across the world! Please wear sturdy shoes and your own work gloves. Lunch will be provided.

Ocean Trash Index Includes Lake Superior

This annual event established by the Ocean Conservancy, helps to promote the awareness and overall reduction of the Ocean Trash Index, which is the world’s largest item-by-item, location-by-location database of trash found in near-shore environments. Every year, people all over the world volunteer in one of the largest single-day clean ups. These volunteers collect and inventory trash that is collected in coastal areas and have collected over 18 million pounds over the last 30 years.


We’re Ordering Your (Free) Lunch – So Please RSVP!

We invite all volunteers to RSVP with Petri Bailey at 705-465-0158 or petri.bailey@pc.gc.ca prior to the event. Parks Canada invites families to experience the outdoors and learn more about our environment and heritage through events such as the shoreline cleanup, and is happy to provide free admission to all Parks Canada’s places for youth 17 and under in 2018 and beyond.
