In honour of  2021 Earth Day, District 7040, along with the Rotary Districts surrounding the Great Lakes and Watershed, are organizing a first-ever Rotary Great Lakes Watershed Cleanup this Spring. Originally planned for April, the date has now been changed in District 7040 to May 29 respecting the Ontario emergency lock-down. We want all our volunteers to be safe, not take any unnecessary risks and abide by regulations.
15 Rotary Districts bordering the Great Lakes as well as the Niagara, St. Lawrence and Ottawa Rivers and the Erie Canal in New York State are committed to clean up!. In Kingston we make use of this opportunity to celebrate our Centennial with yet another event organised by all of the Rotarians in Kingston!

Great Lakes Watershed Clean-up in Kingston, Loyalist Township and the Islands will take place on May 29 2021 and volunteers can register here.
Rotary International Director Valarie Wafer with Rotary International President Holger Knaack are both supportive of this collaborative project.
In Kingston and Loyalist Township, all the Rotary Clubs, partner organizations and volunteer citizens are working  together to organize   this event. We are working with municipalities to ensure appropriate removal of collected garbage.
We plan to clean about 20 sites, located in Loyalist, Kingston and the Islands.
