The Ottawa Disc Golf Club will be participating in the Tim Hortons Cleaning the Capital, on Sunday April 23rd, 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 10AM and go until Beaverbrook Park is shiny clean.

This will be the first year in a while that I'll have to miss this. Heading to Rivermede this weekend. Thanks in advance. I try to do my part during the year year as well. Even picking up one piece of garbage a round helps.

Last fall we collected 15 bags of garbage. We dismantled a teen hang out in the woods and cleaned up all the broken glass and furniture.

I'll be out there again on Saturday with my children cleaning our course and park.

If you are coming out, work gloves are helpful, but I will also have latex gloves.

Big thanks to Ben, Emma and Max who searched the woods and fields of our adopted park, and picked up garbage left by disc golfers and other park users.

It is starting to really show that our twice-a-year commitment to the clean up of the park is starting to pay off. A lot less garbage is being found in the usual places (though we did find our obligatory pair of ladies underwear). Maybe more DGers and OPUs are picking up litter while they play, too.

Cigarette smokers are still the worse. Why is OK to just turf their freakin butts everywhere?

You can follow some of our adventures on Twitter.

Hope to see more of you out in the September for our Fall Cleanup the Capital!
