What happened on Earth Day 2021
I cannot help myself but to start talking about the weather this year. It was a cold and windy day!!!! The weather definitively was not in our favour, but we still got out and cleaned up the river. Despite the weather we still had a great turn out and lots of people sent their entries to win the $100 gift certificate from Out Fly Fishing. Congratulations to our contest winner, selected by Josh from Out Fly Fishing, Brandy @raising_gingers. Thank you to Out Fly Fishing for donating the prize.
Our little family went out to the Bow River near the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary. We spent nearly 2 hrs cleaning up the river and ended up with 7 bags of garbage and a couple of large items. We found 4 shoes, unbelievable number of pens, straws, drink cups and lids. The saddest find was a little stuffed bunny we named Hops. Sorry we could not save him!!!
We hope that next year we will have better weather and perhaps no restrictions so we can do this as a group and have fun getting to know each other. Keep following me on Instagram @mcinnisrealestate and let us make next years clean-up even better. Our planet, our rivers all deserve a little bit of care.
INSIDE THE BAG - GROSS
OUR LOOT :(
