Toyota Enthusiast Club Ardbeg Adopt – A – Trail Cleanup October 2020
In early August, Evgeny from the Toyota Enthusiast Club sent out a call to their members for volunteers to participate in a cleanup of the Ardbeg trail & camping area.
The TEC club, who just adopted the Ardbeg trail this year, already recognized the need to be good stewards.
By September, they already had their plan all laid out for the weekend, and when the Ontario government suddenly slashed the outdoor gathering limits, they didn’t cancel or post-pone their event.
The Toyota Enthusiast Club took the time to pre-register everyone online and break everyone up into groups of no more than 5 trucks per group, and pre-assign them an area to be responsible to clean up to maintain social distancing.
The groups headed out to their pre-assigned areas and got to work cleaning up the trash and articles left behind by other users. Additionally the group working on the south trail stopped at the 2nd bridge and spent some time repairing the degrading gravel surface leading up to the bridge.
In the end, with all their trucks loaded with garbage and scrap, the Toyota Enthusiast Club removed over 700lbs of garbage from the trail.
Great job to everyone that lent a hand!
Don’t forget that we all need to Tread Lightly! and pack out everything that we pack in.
