Event: Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup Wednesday, September 30th, 2015 at the Rouge Beach Park

Want to help protect native wildlife and clean up our community?

For several years now, Toronto Zoo staff and volunteers have participated in one of the greatest events to save Canadian species and keep our shorelines healthy!

This year, the Adopt-A-Pond Wetland Conservation Programme and the Great Lakes Conservation Program invite you to take part in the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup on Wednesday, September 30th at the Rouge Beach Park (about a 10 minute drive from the Zoo)!

The event will run between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. Whether you come out for 15 minutes or a few hours, every little bit makes a big difference!

The clean-up will take place rain or shine. Drop-ins welcome.

If you’d like to get involved or for more information please contact Julia Phillips (Adopt-A-Pond Coordinator) at 416-392-5999 or jphillips@torontozoo.ca.


The Adopt-A-Pond Programme participates in, and hosts, a number of conservation events you can participate in throughout the year; including World Wetlands Day, Earth Day Celebrations, Spring Toad Festival, American Tortoise Rescue’s World Turtle Day and The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup! There are also a number of volunteer days where you can participate in re-naturalizing habitat with tree, wetland and meadow plantings.
