Ganatchio Trail Cleanup Honouring Anne Widholm | Walking In Her Footsteps
April 21 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The inaugural Walking In Her Footsteps, Ganatchio Trail community clean up in honour of Anne Widholm, takes place on Saturday, April 21, 2018.
The community is invited to come out and help keep the Ganatchio Trail clean by participating in this event.
The event is being held in honour of Anne Widholm who walked the trail daily picking up trash along her way to keep it clean. Anne, at 75 years old was the victim of an unprovoked attack back in the fall of 2017.
Participants will pick up trash from the trail in her name, just as Anne had every morning for many years.
Come as an individual or group/team and enjoy walking in the footstep of a wonderful community member, passionate about keeping our trails clean.
Participants will meet at the Ganatchio Trail Little River Road parking lot near “suicide hill” just before 9am. At that time instructions and safety rules will be given out along with supplies including garbage bags, gloves, water, wet wipes and a granola bar.
Volunteers are encouraged to bring any tools they feel may be needed such as shovels, tongs, rope with hooks etc. The goal is to clean up all the trash from the main and sub trails and along the banks of the ditch, river and ponds.
Groups are encouraged to wear team shirts, especially if you are a company team. Please wear comfortable running shoes and clothes you won’t mind getting dirty, a hat, sunglasses and sunblock.
Parking is available at the base of the hill in Little River and the Little River Park on a first come basis. Parking is also available along side streets, please be aware of parking restrictions.
This clean up is being hosted by W.E. Put the WIN in Windsor-Essex and Eyes on Windsor with the support of Essex Region Conservation Authority, The City of Windsor, and local Riverside businesses.
