Shoreline cleanup 2

Cleaning up Rouge beach.

The Adopt-A-Pond crew recently teamed up with the staff at Barrick Gold to clean up the beaches and marshes of Rouge National Urban Park. This company generously contributed to our Blanding’s turtle headstart conservation program and continued to help wildlife by volunteering on Sunday to clear litter from the shorelines where many turtles and other wetland creatures hang out. Thanks guys!!!
