Winder Inclusive Communities Service's community spirit was twelve strong at the Jackie Parker Recreation Area in Southeast Edmonton on Earth Day. Eager, enthusiastic, and armed with trash bags and grabbers, several of WICS Stakeholders (customers and employees) mingled with a variety of dogs and their humans in the off-leash area scouring for trash to make the area clean and enjoyable for all. We removed the usual litter of cigarette butts, cans, bottles, and paper along with some unusual items like cotton ear swabs! Laughter and merriment made the adventure pleasant for all and, most importantly, we contributed to honouring our environment by taking action!
