Gather a group, get outside and “pitch-in” to do your part when Canada’s largest environmental improvement campaign, Pitch-In Week, gets underway from April 22-29, 2017. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the nationwide initiative.
More than 1175 Squamish volunteers have registered to take part in the week-long campaign which aims to clean-up and restore the environment by removing litter and other garbage from urban, rural and wilderness areas.
“Pitch-In Week is an opportunity for every Squamish resident to do something small that will collectively have a big impact,” says District of Squamish Mayor Patricia Heintzman. “We can all as individuals make a difference and together demonstrate how much we care about our community and our incredible natural environment. We are proud to join thousands of communities and groups across the country for this important environmental initiative.”
Residents are invited to take part in these Pitch-In Week events:
The Squamish Lillooet Regional District has issued a friendly 20-minute challenge to its member municipalities to clean up litter in their areas. Help us raise awareness by posting photos of your own cleanup efforts to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #pitchinSquamish, and tagging the friends you’d like to challenge.
