Pitch-In Week: April 22 - 29, 2017

 

Celebrate Earth Day, April 22, 2017 and the 50th Annual Pitch-In Week, April 22 - 29, 2017.

Register an event, or join one that's already planned in your community.

Celebrate 50 years of environmental improvement campaigns with Pitch-In Week 2017. Join other hard-working volunteers across the nation who care about improving their communities.

Pitch-In Week provides an opportunity for communities across Canada to work together to collect litter and recyclables from around their community. Challenge your business, school, neighbourhood, family and friends to PITCH-IN and clean up our commercial areas, wildlife areas, parks and ravines, schools and neighborhoods, highway/roadside, sports fields, waterways, nature & recreational trails.

2017 saw the inaugural 20-Minute Makeover Challenge amongst SLRD staff and employees from our member muncipalities.
