2Rivers CleanupJoin OPIRG Guelph and Wellington Water Watchers for our 37th annual 2Rivers Cleanup. This year, alongside our traditional garbage pickup, the event will feature three other amazing river-loving activities!

What’s the ultimate goal of the 2Rivers Cleanup? To revive, restore and rehabilitate the Speed and Eramosa rivers for all species to enjoy.

Free, Family-Friendly event! Refreshments provided. All are welcome. Choose to participate in one of four river-focused activities:

  1. Wade In! River Cleanup - CLEAN UP the river by learning what stays, what goes and what is habitat. A 37-year tradition!
  2. Bug Out! - ASSESS the quality of the river by collecting, identifying and quantifying its aquatic “bugs”.
  3. Can You Dig It? - SUPPORT tree growth. Grow more trees along the river bank for river health.
  4. Buzzin’ Gardens and Habitat for Beemanity! - CREATE a pollinator garden along the beautiful Eramosa River and build and install bee apartments!

Is this event accessible? Please get in touch if you have accessibility questions or concerns: 519.824.2091 or [email protected].

    Way to go and clean that river. I clean water systems and features everyday with my crew here at http://www.aiolandscaping.com/water-features.html including ponds and small creaks and we really enjoy it.
