Every fall, Red Deerians come out to clean the shoreline along the Red Deer River removing debris that has accumulated over the summer. The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is a national, fall initiative to help keep our waterways and shoreline clean and safe. Studies show that by the year 2050, 99 per cent of seabirds will have eaten plastic and there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. Watch the promo video and see first hand why this event is so important.

Time: 12:30pm - 3:30pm (BBQ and prizes to follow)
