Volunteers from the Rotary Club of Chatham Sunrise will be helping check you in at the Thames Grove Conservation Area – 34 Kingsway Drive in Chatham. At this Municipal Park there is a great boat launch and docks where the boats can go right into the Thames River. At ‘check-in’ we will be providing you with garbage collection bags donated by Lloyd Bag Co. Once you’ve filled your bag, return to the Thames Grove launch area to throw out the trash. We will have garbage and recycling bins on site. At ‘check-out’ when you are finished, receive your locally made, hemp fabric t-shirt – donated by Stronghouse Twin Dolphin Corp! Near the ‘check in/out’ area you can also view displays, tell us where you’ve collected your litter and learn about the LTVCA’s ‘Imagine McGregor’ project.
If you collect the most litter individually, you will earn a free 2022 LTVCA Conservation Area Parking Pass! If you are signing up as a business, please have everyone who is joining your team sign up individually. The business team that collects the most litter will earn a free, full-page ad in the 2022 LTVCA Conservation Area Guidebook, as well as each individual participant will receive a 2022 LTVCA Conservation Area Parking Pass! All current, local COVID-19 health guidelines will be adhered to at this event.
