Let’s Clean Up Highway 40 – May 5
Join us for our annual Highway 40 Clean Up on May 5, from Highway 40 South (Stoney Nakoda Casino) to the Peter Lougheed – Kananaskis Lakes Trail turn-off (50km).
This project originally included cleaning 22km of the Highway. Due to a great volunteer turn out in 2016, we expanded the section by 10km for a total of 32km. Last year we were thrilled that 75 volunteers signed up and got the job done in a few hours. And so to keep you challenged, we’ve expanded our section by another 18km for a total of 50km!
The clean up is sponsored by Alberta Transportation. This event is great for families who can walk 2-4km comfortably, we leave it to your discretion whether your child is old enough to join. No pets allowed.
Date: Saturday, May 5
Meeting time: 9:00am (9:00am – 3:00pm)
Meeting location: Stoney Nakoda Casino Parking
Trans Canada Hwy (Hwy 1) to the junction with Kananaskis Hwy 40. Turn south on Hwy 40, the entrance to the casino parking lot is approximately 100 meters from the junction.
What to expect: Volunteers will work in pairs picking up debris the size of a chocolate bar wrapper or larger and filling garbage bags. You will clean approximately 2-4 kilometres of road edge, or more, depending how fast your group moves.
Sign Up: All adult volunteers are asked to sign up HERE.
If you are signing up your family (parents and children), one adult needs to sign up using the sign up system, and then email Nancy (firstname.lastname@example.org) the names of the other family members, including children’s age.
Note: Should the weather not cooperate and we need to cancel, we will notify you by email around 12pm the day before the event. If the May 5 event is cancelled, it will be postponed to the following Saturday, May 12.
