The Friends of the Porcupine River Watershed’s ‘Litter Warrior Challenge’ is now over and we would like to sincerely thank everyone who helped us clean up the community during the last 2 months…even during physical distancing guidelines!
RESULTS: Over 32 participants and over 55 large garbage bags picked up (along with scrap metal brought for recycling) and trips to the landfill (thanks Tim!)
Thank you to our sponsors: Tim Horton South Porcupine, Ryeway Designs by Sarah, James Toyota.
Draw: We have 8 small ‘thank you’ gift bags and we will be drawing names during our next FPRW meeting on Wednesday, August 5.
Additionally, over the summer, we were made aware of many piles of large items illegally dumped in the community and forest (tires, furniture, etc). They were reported to the proper authority and got picked up by City of Timmins, Newmont, MNRF, etc.
Thank you to everyone involved!
Have a great long weekend!
