Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup

This Magazine Staff

Summer seems to have finally arrived in southern Ontario (thanks probably to all those devastating storms happening south of us). I have a message in my inbox today from a worthy cause and a good excuse to get outside this weekend and over the course of the rest of September. The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup was started 10 years ago by the Vancouver Aquarium, and this year you can get involved across Canada.
“This year more than 30,000 volunteers have registered to clean up river, stream, lake, ocean, and wetland shorelines, across Canada September 11 through 19, 2004.”
I have attached the list of Toronto activities and you can get more info from the website .
