Riverkeeper Shoreline Cleanups (new DIY App)

Volunteers Needed for Shoreline Cleanups!
As the spring waters recede, a lot of trash along our shorelines becomes evident. Whether it’s plastic bottles and bags, pieces of insulation material, broken furniture, or other debris carried by the racing river, none of it belongs in our waterways. Together, we can keep it from re-entering the river and causing contamination.

Not being able to gather in large groups should not stop us from protecting the Ottawa River watershed. You can still clean your local shoreline on your own or with the people you live with! That is why the River Keeper invites you to safely take to the shores with iCleanup, where you can track your cleanups to see how much waste you and the watershed community have kept out of our waterways!

iCleanup allows you to track every aspect of your shoreline cleanups, be it the weight you collect or the number of bags you use. You can even share exactly where you were, what type of waste you found, and send in your photos!

Please gather some friends, family, neighbours and lend a hand so our shorelines are clean and inviting for all to enjoy.

Bring along buckets, gloves, light snacks, a hat, sunscreen, water, and wear sturdy shoes for your cleanup event!
