The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup

Since fall 2013, the Friends of Guild Park and Gardens have organized  shoreline cleanups at Guild Park and Gardens as part of the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, presented by Loblaws Companies Limited.  Together with Love Your Lake cleanups by A Greener Future,  956 kg (2,103 lb) of garbage and recyclables have been collected from woodland paths, roadway, and Lake Ontario shoreline.  

If you'd like to see what volunteers have collected check out the Shoreline Cleanup Data.

A joint conservation initiative of the Vancouver Aquarium and WWF, the Shoreline Cleanup is about removing shoreline litter to help create healthy waters for everyone, including the wildlife and communities that depend on them.

Join us Saturday May 13 2017 9am - noon for the next Guild Park Shoreline Cleanup. Visit our Events page for details or register online, starting in March 2017,  at
