Help weed and clean-up the EcoPath and Chippewa Creek this SaturdayThursday, September 26, 2013 by: Kate AdamsNorth Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority
One year ago, the North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority (NBMCA) and its partners hosted the official launch of the Chippewa Creek EcoPath sponsored by RBC Blue Water Project.
"The EcoPath was developed a community initiative to restore and enhance natural values & heritage of the creek through stewardship and education.”
"The Project incorporates restorative plantings along the creek side, an educational website, information desks and an Adopt-a-Creek program.”
“Since the official launch a year ago, 10 groups or individuals have adopted a section of the creek and have been responsible for two clean-ups annually” said Paula Loranger, Community Relations Coordinator, NBMCA.
“These groups and individuals have been a great addition to the Adopt-the-Creek program and have helped clean many sections of the creek”
We would like to invite members of the community to join the NBMCA and EcoPath Partners in celebrating the 1st Anniversary of the Chippewa Creek EcoPath on Saturday, September 28, 2013 from 9am till noon.
Come out to enjoy some refreshments and help weed and clean-up the EcoPath and Chippewa Creek.
Weeding and clean-up begin at 9am; celebration and refreshment break at 10am.
Please meet at Second Avenue East and Regina Street. All tools and equipment will be provided.
All Welcome and some sections of the Creek still available for adoption!
