PARTNERING TO KEEP OUR TOWN AND WATERSHED CLEAN

Rotary Club of Grimsby and the Town of Grimsby have partnered to make the 2022 Great Lakes Watershed Clean-up – West Niagara a great success.  Several other community groups and institutions have joined in as well.

This is the Town of Grimsby’s Centennial Year!

To celebrate the history and legacy of Grimsby, staff are facilitating various projects, events, and service enhancements to commemorate this milestone. Celebrating a centennial year is a great accomplishment. We are excited to partner with Grimsby Rotary to clean our watershed as a celebratory event!

  • Residents are encouraged to select a seedling species that best suits their private property planting conditions
  • Trees cannot be planted on boulevards, along streets or in town parks
  • Participants are requested to leave their addresses so that we can create a visual map of where the ‘Centennial Year’ seedlings are planted and track them yearly
  • Participants are encouraged to share images of their planted seedling using the hashtag #Grimsby100
