Cleaning up Clarington
Our first cleanup at Courtice Road beach was a lot of fun! We had some great volunteers join us and found a lot of stuff! It was a beautiful place but could really use a municipal garbage can somewhere. It seems as though someone was doing some target practice as we found lots of shotgun shells. We found lots of other weird things like night cream and a chicken recipe. People are doing some weird things down at the beach. We also stopped in at Darlington Provincial Park for a quick cleanup. We found a lot of small things here and decided to make a bit of artwork. It may not be the best piece of work you've ever seen but it was nice to spend some time enjoying the waves, watching the birds, and stretching out in the sun.
