They have managed to attract several of the world leaders on environment issues: David Suzuki and Dame Jane Morris Goodall have both taken part if Burlington Green events in Burlington

Their mission, their focus and their activities resonate with the people of Burlington who turn out in the thousands every year to clean up and green up the city.

They recruit hundreds of young people who do the dirty work after major events at Spencer Smith Park where they help clean up the park and make sure the garbage is readied for a trip to a dump.

The now have a “head office” located in the heritage Pump House at the edge of the lake in the Beachway.

They seem to have found a new niche that the public finds very useful. Last weekend they held am electronic recycle collection – loads of stuff was dropped off – far more than was originally expected.
