Local residents participate in the TD Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup TORONTO, Sept. 22 /CNW/ - WHAT: The TD Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is one of the largest conservation initiatives in the world. Powered by volunteers, the cleanup started 15 years ago in Vancouver and has now grown to more than 60,000 volunteers coast to coast whose goal is to have a positive impact on the local environment by removing harmful garbage from their local shorelines. This includes ponds, streams, rivers, lakes, and of course, oceans. WHEN: Thursday, September 25, 2008 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. WHERE: Fanshawe Park Dam Meeting Place: Fanshawe Park Main Entrance 1424 Clarke Road - parking on right shoulder past the dam WHO: Yvette Scrivener, Regional Manager, TD Friends of the Environment Foundation Brad Hertner, Community Partnerships Specialist, Upper Thames Valley Conservation Authority WHY: Every year over one million birds and 100,000 mammals and turtles die through entanglement and ingestion of litter, and it's estimated that 80 per cent of this litter originates from land based sources. This year, over 60,000 Canadians will work together from September 20 to 28 to remove nearly 100 tonnes of litter from our shorelines and waterways during the 15th annual TD Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. Local TD employees and London residents are encouraged to participate in the cleanup at Fanshawe Park; or join us at the cleanup at River Forks park on Saturday, September 27 (meet in Children's Museum parking lot).
