12th Annual Clean Up Green Up – Burlington Green

Sign up to participate in this popular and rewarding city-wide opportunity to safely collect litter from our communities. You can also register to participate in various green up activities that can be done at home to help grow the local tree canopy and strengthen local biodiversity too!

Since BurlingtonGreen began hosting this inclusive event in 2011, a whopping 110,000 participants have joined these collective efforts, resulting in cleaner and greener parks, streams, schoolyards and neighbourhoods.

The popular Community Clean Up Green Up dual-component event also invites you to send along your eco-action photos for extra chances to win some great eco-prizes. We will be announcing some exciting FREE giveaways in the weeks ahead as well.

As a community, we have the responsibility to honour, care for and respect all the Creation gives to provide us with life. This includes the land, water, air, fire, animals, plants and our ancestors.

The Anishinabek Peoples have utilized this land for millennia and we would like to acknowledge their direct descendants, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, as the rightful caretakers and titleholders of this land upon which we live, work and conduct ourselves. We acknowledge our treaty relationship and responsibilities to both the land and these original peoples.

We also recognize that this land is rich in pre-contact history and customs, which includes the Anishinabek and Haudenosaunee and since European contact, has and continues to become home for Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. And it is in the spirit and intent of the Dish With One Spoon, wampum agreement whereby we will collectively care for and respect the land, water, animals and each other in the interests of peace and friendship and for the benefit of not only ourselves but of our future descendants.  

The HEN Office resides on Treaty 22, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. For more information on Treaty 22 go to: http://mncfn.ca/treaty2223/
