Help Us Learn About Litter on The Bruce Trail and at Bruce Trail Access Points
Peninsula Bruce Trail Club is committed to developing and maintaining the Bruce Trail from Wiarton to Tobermory. As trail use increases, we are even more committed to helping trail users learn about the Leave No Trace principles. We are very fortunate to collaborate with our community partners: Bruce Peninsula National Park, Keep the Bruce Clean & Green, Ontario Parks, Owen Sound Waste Watchers, and with permission from the Northern Bruce Peninsula Councilto plan for litter education and pickup events at two hot spot locations–Little Cove and Lions Head Nature Reserve. Although we have planned for group litter events, at this time we are encouraging local Peninsula volunteers to conduct individual litter pickups at two locations (see below). Free online training and support is available.
All volunteers are required to complete A Greener Future's free, online training. Learn about A Greener Future: https://www.agreenerfuture.ca
All volunteers will adhere to current COVID guidelines.
