Cocagne Community Clean-up

Cocagne Community Clean-up

Together we can make Cocagne a greener place!

The Groupe de développement durable du Pays de Cocagne (GDDPC) in collaboration with the Communauté rurale de Cocagne invites you to a community clean-up on Saturday April 24, 2021 at 10:00 am.

We will meet at the parking lot of the Pelican restaurant in Cocagne, near the four corners. If the weather is bad, we will postpone the activity to Sunday April 25, 2021 at 2pm. There will be all the necessary equipment such as gloves, bags and snacks. Please dress for the weather. We are raffling off participation prizes which include beautiful local produce, butterfly plants and sweaters. Join us for the Cocagne Community Cleanup and we’ll have a lot of fun rehabilitating the Cocagne River watershed!

Each year we celebrate Earth Day on April 22. Over the past few years, Cocagne Watershed residents have been passionate about improving our community by participating in Earth Day activities such as community cleanups and tree identification workshops. Things are a little different with COVID-19, but that doesn’t mean we can’t continue to safely care for our planet.
