TD Clean and Green RiverFest
This year's TD Clean and Green RiverFest happened on Saturday, May 7, 2016 from 2 - 5 pm (behind St. Albert Centre). Thanks to City staff and volunteers, 460 trees were planted and approximately 40 bags of debris and garbage was collected. In addition to cleaning up along the river and planting trees, there was an Environmental Fair, and BBQ care of St. Albert Centre.
The TD Clean and Green RiverFest is the annual river clean-up combined with The River Edge Enhancement Project (REEP); a community partnership consisting of community members, BLESS volunteers and City staff who each year work on increasing the amount of animal habitat in the river valley by planting native trees and shrubs along the river’s edge. This event is for all ages. It’s an opportunity for individuals, groups or families to attend and to learn how everyone can impact his/her environment in a positive way. The environment fair part of the day provides many learning opportunities to this theme.
Stay tuned as more details develop for the TD Clean and Green RiverFest in 2017.
