Clean Nova Scotia and the Spryfield Community Action Coalition will be
holding a public litter cleanup on Earth Day April 22nd to launch the
2007 Great Nova Scotia Pick-Me-Up program.  The cleanup will begin at
12:30pm and run until 2:30pm.  All participants must meet in the parking
lot of the Lions Wave Pool (Captain Spry Centre) on 10 Kidston Road,
just off of Herring Cove Road (Hwy 349).  You can get there by catching
the #20 bus at the Mumford Terminal, which runs every half hour on
Sundays or hop on your bike for a good ride.


Tim Hortons, the sponsor of the Great Nova Scotia Pick-Me-Up will be on
site with warm drinks and free travel mugs (while supplies last).  There
will also be other great prizes donated by the community and free
cleanup materials to get you going!  


Please dress appropriately for the weather.  Long sleeved shirts and
pants are recommended as some of you may be working in wooded areas.  No
sandals please! Wear sunscreen and a hat and bring water with you
(though there will be some available on site).  

Media will be invited so please arrive on time so that we can capture
the community support and inspire other parts of Nova Scotia to take
part in similar activities.


Clean Nova Scotia will have 20 pickup sticks on site to lend to anyone
who may be either elderly or physically unable to pick up garbage with
their hands. Non-latex gloves will be provided by HRM but we recommend
that you bring a sturdy glove such as a work or gardening glove to
protect you from any sharp objects.  


Children are welcome to join us but they must be accompanied by an adult
at ALL times.


If you have another activity going on for Earth Day please be sure to
register your event on the www.earthday.ca <http://www.earthday.ca/>
website.  This will help you invite the public to your event or just
show the rest of Canada how active we are here in Nova Scotia.  You can
call Kari Riddell at 420-3474 if you have any troubles registering on
the site or if you need more details on the Earth Day cleanup.
