Spring Opportunities to take ACTION!

We’re excited to share a terrific line up of spring opportunities for you to get involved in to make a positive difference, right here in Burlington.

April ( Earth Month)

Our 12th annual Community Clean Up event is NOW ON. Be a part of this city-wide initiative to help keep Burlington clean, green and beautiful. Organizing a safe, fun and rewarding litter clean up is an excellent way to enjoy the outdoors while helping the planet locally. Gather your family, friends, community group, coworkers and classroom, and help remove litter from our parks, creeks, school yards, neighbourhoods and more.
