The 2Rivers Festival will feature old favourites, including catch and release of river creatures at the Arboretum and near the covered bridge, riverside hikes, a canoe paddle and an evening of river-related stories at the Boathouse.

River cleanup reaches another milestone

The Speed River Cleanup’s 35th anniversary event will kick off this year’s 2Rivers Festival on June 7.
The cleanup, now known as the 2Rivers Cleanup, is the first of 15 free events that will take place over the next week to celebrate the Speed and Eramosa rivers as part of the festival.
Volunteers will meet at Silvercreek Park west of Edinburgh Road at 9 a.m. to begin wading the river and walking the banks to pull litter from the river. But this year’s cleanup will also include painting yellow fish beside storm drains, tree planting and river mapping with Ontario Streams.
Volunteers can register online at www.2riversfestival.org, where people can also learn all about the other festival events.
New this year will be the first “bioblitz” in the Yorklands area south of York Road, with experts and the general public identifying native living things in the area, a news release said. There are also two new river-related walking and cycling events – a heritage walk of the Two River Neighbourhood on Thursday June 12 and a riverside cycling trip on Saturday June 14.
There will also be some old favourites, including catch and release of river creatures at the Arboretum and near the covered bridge, riverside hikes, a canoe paddle and an evening of river-related stories at the Boathouse.
Festival program brochures are available at the Boathouse, as well as online at www.2riversfestival.org
