Event description

Description

The Sustainability Office at the University of Windsor and WWF-Canada invite you to join students and staff, as well as families and residents of the City of Windsor in helping protect wildlife and the places they call home with the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup of the Detroit River on Saturday October 21, 2017.

Did you know that approximately 80% of ocean plastic originates on land? At this rate, it's estimated there will be more plastic than fish in the sea by 2050.

By rolling up our sleeves we can make a positive impact, stopping litter in its tracks before it can get into our lakes, rivers, and beyond. Together, we can help make the Riverfront Trail and shorelines of the Detroit River safer for all living things.

Registration opens at 1pm at Windsor Sculpture Park. Cleanup supplies will be provided and there will be opportunities for prizes and photos with the WWF mascot.

See you at the shoreline!
