What's Happening in Our Club!

Environmental Stewardship - Tuesday, January 16

Stewards of Cootes Watershed, Executive Director, Alan Hansell provided an informative talk on bringing back our pristine streams. There are multiple sub-watersheds in Dundas, Hamilton, West Dale and Burlington that flow into the Cootes Nature Sanctuary, an incredible biodiverse setting.  Alan leads a team of Watershed members and volunteers to bring greater awareness to groups and individuals about regular maintenance of the sub-watersheds. People can make a difference by their volunteer community engagement in regular environmental cleanups, eliminating hazards to wildlife and reducing leachate from polymers. All is not gloomy for the Cootes Nature Sanctuary, there are reasons for celebration. The Chinook Salmon have returned to Spencer Creek, there are positive results from artificial creek booms that collect garbage and we are an excellent example for communities within the St. Lawrence Basin. To date after five years of cleanup, almost a half million pounds of garbage has been removed from the Cootes Watershed. Joining Alan today was Chris Boothe the Watershed Program Manager and Katie Rees, volunteer. Introduced by Rotarian Marguerite and thanked by Rotarian Peter. More on line information at stewardsofcootes.ca or FaceBook.
