Thames River Rally Kicks Off 2015

Today's cleanup with the annual Thames River Cleanup marks the first cleanup of our season.  As you know, it was a harsh, cold and long winter and as you can see we got a lot of trash.  We were delighted to be part of today's massive cleanup effort and we know it made a big difference.  How do I know?  Well, the noisy birds were thanking us and they see everything from low and high!

Thanks to all our excellent volunteers who applied their enthusiasm, sharp eyes, deft garbage grabbin' hands and muscles to the job.  

Our next cleanup is tentatively scheduled for May 23rd and the location is yet to be determined, but be sure, we need help and there will be lots to do.  Please keep an eye on our website (www.thamesriverrally.ca) and our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/thamescleanupfor updates and more information.

Thames River Cleanup 2015

Our first clean-up kicks off with the Thames River Cleanup (www.thamesrivercleanup.ca) on Saturday April 18, 2014.

Meet us at 9:00 am in the large parking lot near the Registan Rug store on the South side of Oxford Street just East of the bridge (parking available - see "Staging Area" on the map below). We are responsible for collecting trash on both sides of the river from Oxford Street East to Blackfriars' Bridge (pink area on the map). 

We'll provide garbage bags and gloves (we also have a few garbage grabbers). Apart from weather appropriate clothing you'll need some sturdy boots or hiking shoes. We recommend you wear long pants and bring a bottle of drinking water.

Families are welcome, however parents must be responsible for their children at all times.

See you at the river!
