The Humber River Pals emerged as a response to the litter problem along the riverside. The founders of this collective did not want to ignore the issue and instead grouped together to host their first clean up on May 29, 2021. The community response was fantastic and since then, each event has had a turn out of upwards 46 volunteers per event. Together we are all taking care of the environment and strengthening community bonds.
Our mission is to organise regular ravine cleanups to reduce the amount of litter in our ravine system while introducing the beauty and history of the Humber River to the high needs neighbourhood of Weston.Our objective is to empower and inspire local residents to be more conscientious about their waste and consumption.
