Many proud sweepers took care of our park and sent us their photos. Thank you for pitching to keep Sligo Creek Park clean! The wildlife thank you too.

 Spring 2021: Sweep the Creek is back!

More than 400 volunteers swept Sligo of litter over two weeks in April. Thank you, all!

FOSC Stewards supported Individual / Small Group Sweeps by giving out trash bags and gloves and organizing small groups to tackle litter hot-spots according to Parks’ guidelines for safe, socially-distanced activities. A special thanks goes out to Ed Murtagh who organized the Spring Sweep this year.

Share your photos of your sweep and you and your “favorite” trash finds on facebook (hashtag #FOSCSweeptheCreek) or email them to [email protected] and we’ll post them on the website.

If you found participating in the Sweep rewarding, you can continue to “sweep the creek” on your walks in Sligo. Dispose of the litter in the Park trash cans or at home in your regular trash and recycling.
