Hamilton's Awesome Escarpment - Nature. Our Home. Our Responsibility.
BY Greg Lenko
ON April 8, 2018
 
The Escarpment Project is a not-for-profit organization that provides remediation and stewardship of the Niagara Escarpment. The Escarpment Project Annual Clean-up is the largest volunteer environmental clean up in Ontario. People of all ages gather at various locations along the escarpment in the Greater Hamilton Area to revitalize the forest and help return it to its natural splendour by removing litter & debris that has been dumped and left there, in some cases for years and even decades.

During the last clean-up almost 1000 volunteers helped remove approximately 800+ bags of litter plus furniture, car parts, bikes, shopping carts, computers, TVs and more. What people find most surprising is how fun and rewarding it is to help out the environment in this way.

The Escarpment Project Annual Clean-up for 2018 takes place on Saturday April 21st at 10AM. If you're interested in registering or want more information visit their website at http://escarpmentproject.ca/.
