The weather may have been cold, wet and windy for Earth Day, April 22nd, 2014, but that did not deter a small band of dedicated environmentalists from working to clean up debris from Port Stanley's main beach.

The beach clean up event was organized by Earthmama Farms Daycare, a non-profit group from Central Elgin that wants to form a network of environmentally conscious individuals. They had carpooled to the beach from the Elgin Mall in St. Thomas, arriving at Mackies at 7:00 P.M. The half hour scheduled clean-up event was about the limit for working outside on the beach in the blustery weather.

Earthmama is trying to form a network of environmentally conscious individuals that can be mobilized to come out and document environmental events, with a view to presenting the findings and suggested solutions to the appropriate authorities. The first step to taking action is in having a voice and establishing a presence. For information on how to join please call 226-653-0058 or visit earthmamafarmsdaycare.com.
