The Ottawa Disc Golf Club will be participating in the Tim Hortons Cleaning the Capital, on Sunday April 27th, by cleaning up our disc golf course and ADOPTED PARK, Beaverbrook Park, Kanata.

Come out and demonstrate community pride by cleaning up our fairways, rough, and woods, “while enjoying the outdoors and ensuring that Ottawa stays clean, green, graffiti and litter-free.” (Cleaning the Capital)

We will have garbage and yard waste bags, and rakes. Bring your own pair of gloves.

We'll start up at 9 and go until Beaverbrook Park is shiny clean.

From the City of Ottawa Cleaning the Capital FAQs:

Are there some basic safety tips we should follow?

You should do everything you can to ensure that you and your project team are safe during your clean up project. Some basic safety rules include:
•Supervise children in their cleanup efforts and emphasize that safety comes first.
•Wear gloves and appropriate footwear.
•Wear pants and long-sleeved shirts.
•Read and follow safety instructions on graffiti removal products
•If cleaning near a roadway, wear a safety vest and clean only the non-travelled portion of a roadway.
•Be aware of your surroundings and the potential hazards (i.e. poison ivy, streams and branches) and remember to put on protective eyewear as necessary.
•Have a hand washing station available for volunteers.
•Do not lift heavy objects.
•Never touch a needle with your hands. Call 3-1-1 (TTY: 613-580-2401) for disposal information and assistance.
•Wear gloves to pick up cigarette butts. You can also use a broom and dustpan or a rake to clean them up.
•Children must never touch items like glass, broken wood, metal, needles, or household hazardous waste. It’s a good idea to double up your garbage bags for transporting these items.

Fantastic work out there gentlemen! The park looks great.

I would imagine the Kanata residents would feel a lot happier knowing that Beaverbrook Park now has +150 less dog sh!t bags in its trees and bushes, one less dead squirrel in a bag, one less ripped apart rabbit and about a dozen less condoms.

Twelve garbage bags in total collected around our course.

This is a great start to our adoption!

Thank you.
