Cambrian College takes out the trash

Posted on Tuesday June 3, 2014

SUDBURY – On June 9, Cambrian College employees will take out the trash and tidy up Sudbury’s trails and recreational areas, as part of its annual Team Day celebration.

Teams are encouraged to be creative by dressing the part with a team name, team colour or uniform, and embracing a theme of being environmentally conscious. The C3 Initiative – Cambrian Community Clean-up – is a fun way to bring staff together to make a difference in the community.

Team Day takes place Monday, June 9 from 8:45 a.m. until noon along the following trails: Rotary Park main trail (trailheads at Mountain Street and Adanac ski hill); Rotary Park Flour Mill trail; the Junction Creek trail behind RBC on Lasalle Blvd.; the Junction Creek Hawthorne trail; Junction Creek Waterway Park; Nolin Creek (off Beatty Street); and Lasalle Secondary school.

The media are invited to visit with employees as they clean up some of the trails around the city. This is a good opportunity to learn more about Junction Creek, its role in the community, and the rubbish that collects over the winter months. It also supports efforts to improve habitat quality for Blanding’s turtles, which make their home in Junction Creek. As teams will be dressed up, there are likely to be some vibrant photo opportunities, as well.
