On November 9, 2022, the Waterloo Wetland Lab led a team of volunteers in a wetland cleanup event with the intention of emphasizing the importance of urban wetlands. The wetland, located near Fischer-Hallman Road and Columbia Street in Waterloo is one of WWL member, Claire Schon's, research sites.
In total, 35 volunteers collected 17 bags of trash that would have otherwise ended up in nearby watersheds.
CTV News Kitchener was there to capture this great event.
The Water Institute also wrote a piece on the cleanup.
Thank you to everyone who came out to help clean up the wetland!
