Runs August 1 - September 30, 2020
We need your help to keep these beloved community spaces healthy & vibrant for all to enjoy! The parks, streets, and riverbanks within the Meewasin Valley have been enjoyed by over 1.65 million people in a single year; and Meewasin sites and areas are home to more than 200 plant species, 100 bird species, and numerous insects, amphibians, reptiles and animals.
Helping out is easy! Meewasin provides the bags, gloves, and means to dispose of your garbage from August 1st – September 30th, 2020.

Demonstrations will be occurring each of the days listed above at 10:30 am and 2:30 pm. and will be limited to 30 people in close proximity.
These grazing demonstrations will be held outdoors. We ask viewers to practice physical distancing of 2 meters from groups outside of their households.
