The Glad Fall Cleanup

August 24th, 2018 Comments off

"Have you ever wondered how our parks remain so clean?  The Glad Fall Cleanup is just around the corner and Carlington parks need volunteers do to a bit of raking, a bit of filling in leaf bags, and lots of community socializing.  This is the 25th year of the campaign!

Alexander and Meadowvale parks are scheduled for Saturday, September 29th, 2018, 10am-12 with a rain date on Sunday.  More parks will likely be registered so updates will follow.  If you are interested, please contact greening@carlingtoncommunity.org

Parks are not the only focus of the Cleaning the Capital campaign - you can register for your own project too.  For more information, check out the Glad Cleaning the Capital website."
