The Township of Ramara is launching a month-long Community Clean-up program to celebrate Earth Day on April 22. This program encourages individuals or groups to take action on litter and help keep our environment clean and safe.

“As a reminder of the importance of taking action to protect our earth, I strongly encourage all members of the community, including residents, students, and local organizations, to participate in our month-long clean-up event to support Earth Day,?states Mayor Clarke. ?By taking small yet meaningful steps towards protecting the environment, we can make a significant difference in the upkeep of our trails, parks, and waterways. So let’s come together as a community and work towards a cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable future for all.”

How can I participate?
