SAITennial Squad Pathway and River Clean Up

Registration for this event is now full

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Join the SAITennial Squad as we do our part to clean up the city’s pathways and river banks during the 50th Annual Pathways and River Clean Up.

The Pathway and River Clean Up is held every year on the first Sunday in May to remove litter that accumulated over the winter months along our pathways and riverbanks. This event is about more than just picking up garbage; it’s about working together to keep our parks, pathways and shared spaces free from materials that could harm us, the environment and our city’s wildlife. It’s also about sustainability, knowing our efforts today to keep Calgary litter free will have a lasting effect on the health of our environment and the vibrancy of our city for many years to come.
