Vermilion River Clean-up

Please Join us for our Vermilion River Clean-up

The Vermilion River Stewardship is holding its first Vermilion River Clean-up on Wabagishik Lake, scheduled for Sunday, 7 June 2015, from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.  We invite you to come out to help clean up the litter in and around the lake and river.  Please bring your camera along to help record the event.

You must register to take part in this fun community building event by Monday, 25 May 2015.  You can send an email to info@VermilionRiverStewards.ca to let us know that you will participate.

Volunteers should arrive at the Wabagishik Road Boat Launch by 9:45 am (see map below).  Everyone will be transported by barge to key shoreline areas where litter and garbage will be collected.

VRS will be providing a barbecue lunch for all our volunteers.

The total amount of garbage collected during the event, and the most interesting find, will be shared on this page. Watch for details to come in the weeks following the event!

Stay tuned with what our volunteers are up to during the event through Twitter or Facebook .

Note:  Come dressed for the occasion – you should bring along a life jacket, rubber gloves and boots – waders would be a great idea.
