Great Manitoba Shoreline Cleanup, June 2018

Our Water Program and Youth Network took on the Great Manitoba Shoreline Cleanup! The project was an exciting combination of community building, environmental action, and citizen science.





The results: The winning number was 895! 895 what? Cigarette butts – yuck! These lovely little bits of highly toxic, persistent, soon to be microplastic pieces were found in a pretty good number on this very recently cleaned site. It is crazy what we could come up with after the site had already been cleaned! Our total was 43 Kg/95 pounds of garbage. Thank you to everyone who attended!
