Give our river a hug!

2014 Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup

Join your fellow paddlers at the Almonte Old Town Hall, Saturday, June 21,  2014 at 8:30 AM to be part of our community’s 2014 Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. The paddle flotilla will leave at 9:00 AM from the Almonte Old Town Hall and paddle up river (but downwind!) to the boat launch in Appleton. Our goal is to fill a dumpster with shoreline debris, so we need your help. Bring wading shoes or boots, gloves, a rake or boat hook, your canoe or kayak, and your required safety equipment.

Garbage bags will be provided. Boats will be traveling with us on the river to collect garbage bags and offer relief to any weary paddlers. The trip covers 10km and can be paddled in two to three hours. The Mills Community Support Corporation and volunteers will provide complimentary transportation for you and your boat back to the starting point at the Almonte Old Town Hall by 1:00 PM.

This is a family friendly event and a great opportunity to meet other river lovers. For more information, contact Mike O’Malley 613-859-5300 or
