Clean-up activities in wildlife areas are regularly organized by
Friends of Second Marsh in the Second Marsh watershed. This
generally involves picking up and disposing of litter along trails
and stream valleys. Cleaning up litter helps keep these areas
more attractive for the people who use them and also removes some
materials that could be harmful to wildlife (i.e. discarded fishing
gear, broken glass, etc.)
Our main clean up event is the Beach Clean-up run
each year at McLaughlin Bay Wildlife Reserve. Friends’
staff and volunteers cover the shoreline trails along McLaughlin Bay
and the barrier beach in front of Second Marsh picking up litter
along the way.
If you are interested in volunteering contact Friends’ office at (905) 723-5047.
