IT TAKES A VILLAGE!

Thank You to the community members, students, and families who came out to restore the beauty of Shawnigan on Earth Day – your Hearts-in-Action have altogether given nature a huge helping hand – taking the trash out of our treasure!

Thank You to our sponsors, partners, and local businesses for your support of this community-building event. Donated prizes brought smiles to all, especially the winners! Kind contributors helped keep us fueled and hydrated – plus expanded awareness with roadside safety signage and a reusable Shawnigan Village banner. As well, nature-inspired artists, watershed stewards, and safety-trained fire department volunteers gave their time and talents to make the soggy day a satisfying success. We’re very proud of our local schools too, and imagine a bit of friendly competition?!

Heartfelt Gratitude to our local waste management providers for making this epic event possible! P.A.N. Disposal donated time, trucks, and expertise to safely pick up from our two official Event Drop Zones. DL’s Bins / Fisher Rd Recycling supplied a huge walk-in bin with more than enough space to pile everything brought in! Their facilities sort and divert waste wherever possible. Beyond Earth Day, together, we can inspire others to tackle litter wherever it appears, one invasive piece at a time. “Better yet, don’t be dumping it!”

Historically Showe’luqun was known as a sacred place to gather beneficial medicines. We’re honoured to help take care of Shawnigan as One Heart One Mind respecting the land and the waters. In Hul’q’umi’num – “Nuts’amaat Shqwaluwun” – means Working and Succeeding Together (Jared Qwustenuxun Williams). We all have a responsibility to do our part.

Together We Envision A Beautiful, Natural, Litter-Free Shawnigan… Please sign up to “Adopt-An-Area” at our website www.ShawniganRotaryEcoClub.ca, to join in the LitterWatch efforts year-round.

“You Are Our Heroes!” Huy tseep q’u ! Thank you, Everyone!
