Cleanup Cascades in the suburbs of Toronto

 

 

Come make a difference with PurNat and join us for our next clean-up at Beaver Creak park in Richmond Hill Ontario!

 

Located in an industrial spot, we see a significant amount of illegal industrial and household waste dumping, harming flora and fauna. This park is also home to several beavers and is upstream of Rouge National Urban Park, a sensitive habitat for many endangered species.

 

Participating in this event will continue to commit a nature free of waste for future generations and improve the health of our environment.

 

 

When: October 17, 2022

Where: Beaver Park, Richmond Hill, Ontario
