First 360 Clean-up Operation in Kahnawake


The Kahnaw�:ke Environment Protection Office (KEPO), the GRAME, Mission 100 Tonnes, and Nathalie Lasselin (Urban Water Odyssey) are kicking off the St. Lawrence River shoreline clean-up season with the first event at Tekakwitha Island and surrounding waters. With the help of volunteer divers and members of the Kahnaw�:ke community, the organizing groups hope to get closer to their goal of removing ten (10) tons of waste from the river′s banks.

The operation will be held on Tekakwitha Island, from 9am until 1pm, this Saturday, July 17, 2021. The event will be open to all Kahnawa′kehr�:non, the organizers′ teams, and the media. Nathalie Lasselin will be present with divers to clean up underwater while the rest of the team will be working on the land portion.

For more details about the campaign and the upcoming event, and to register for the activity, visit and their Facebook event. Walk-up volunteers are also welcome on the day of the clean-up. For participating, cleanup volunteers will have the chance to win an eco-friendly prize package worth over $100!
