2018 Annual River Cleanup with JL Ilsley

On Saturday June 9th members of the MRWA and JL Ilsley held the annual McIntosh Run River Cleanup. Beginning at the Captain William Spry Community Centre volunteers removed shopping carts, a bicycle, a bathtub, discarded construction material, dog poop bags, plastic straws, coffee cups, and other litter from the river and surround area.

According to the leadership teacher at JL Ilsley, there has been less garbage overall each year he’s been involved. The cleanup was followed by pizza back at the community centre. It was a super day and the high school students were great! A big thanks to everyone who came out.
