A city official is hoping for hordes of volunteers on Sunday when the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup event happens in Red Deer.

“The more people who help out, the more area we can cover,” said Suzanne Jubb, community and program facilitator with the City of Red Deer.

The event runs from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Kerry Wood Nature Centre.

Participants are given cleaning supplies at 12:30 p.m. and assigned an area of the riverbank to clean. A free barbecue will follow. All volunteers are entered in a prize draw.

Participants should wear appropriate footwear and bring gloves. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
