Keep the Bruce Trail Clean & Green

If interested in participating as an individual go to:

Enviro-Hike participants will pick up litter while learning about our fragile ecosystems along the Bruce Trail, and create an opportunity to develop a relationship to the land. A trained volunteer will accompany the participants, collecting and submitting litter data to our partner, A Greener Future.


Submitted data from all collection will be analyzed and lessons learned will guide the PBTC in its ongoing efforts to “Keep the Bruce Trail Clean & Green”.

All participants will adhere to current COVID guidelines.


Join a Park Interpreter for an Enviro-hike at Little Cove in Bruce Peninsula National Park or Lion’s Head Nature Reserve.  These small group hikes are about more than just exercise.

What Will I Be Doing?

Learn about our unique ecosystem, rugged landscape and the flora and fauna living on the Saugeen Bruce Peninsula during this FREE guided hike, led by a Park Interpreter. While on your hike, you will also help care for the Bruce Trail by picking up and categorizing litter. A trained volunteer will submit the data. Following the Enviro-Hike, you will join a Trash Talk Café to share your observations and experience with other Litter Volunteers.
