York’s 20-minute makeover will spruce up Keele and Glendon campuses

York is participating in the City of Toronto’s 20-minute makeover to mark Earth Day. Staff from Yorwise & CSBO have organized a targeted effort for the Keele campus on Friday, April 15 at 2pm.

The concept behind the makeover is simple – people are asked to stop what they are doing and get outside to clean up areas adjacent to their office or residence. Participants should dress appropriately for the weather and bring appropriate shoes or boots.

The Grounds Department in CSBO will provide work gloves and trash bags for litter pickup at the designated meeting spots on the Keele and Glendon campuses. The focus for this year’s makeover will be these locations on the Keele campus:

  • Assiniboine and Passy Gardens Sportsfield
  • Arboretum
  • Boyer Woodlot
  • Danby Woods
  • Boynton Woods

Glendon community members are asked to meet at 2pm outside Glendon Hall Manor.
