The Escarpment Project Annual Clean-up for 2015 takes place on Sunday April 26 at 11 AM.

The Escarpment Project Annual Clean-up was started on Sept 14 2011 and quickly erupted to become the largest volunteer environmental clean up in Hamilton and one of the largest of its kind in Canada. People of all ages gather at various locations along the escarpment in Hamilton to revitalize the forest and help return it to its natural splendour by removing litter & debris that has been dumped and left there, in some cases for years and even decades.

Students are able to get community service hours for helping. Click for more info.

People can do many things including: Clean up litter, help hand out supplies, hike and video tape the clean up. You can stay and help for as long or short of a time as you like. All help is appreciated. Even if you just come for moral support. If you will be video taping please just email us the footage you would like us to use in the clean up documentary or put it on a USB stick and allow us to copy it. We will return the USB stick.

The Last Bonobo: A Journey Into the Congo

  • Date: Thursday, April 30, 2015
  • Time: 7:00pm
  • Location: Bryan Prince Bookseller
  • Address: 1060 King Street West, Hamilton (Google Maps)
  • Contact: Kerry
  • Email: events@princebooks.net
  • Phone: (905) 528-4508

When acclaimed Montreal author Deni Béchard learned of the last living bonobos — matriarchal great apes which are, alongside chimpanzees, our closest relatives — he was astonished. How could we accept the disappearance of this majestic species, along with the rainforest it calls home?

Determined not to sit by and do nothing, Béchard began investigating the problems facing the bonobos — industrial and urban encroachment, aggressive resource extraction by foreign companies, the civil war and genocide which had wreaked havoc on the Congo intermittently for more than a century, the trade in bush-meat — and in the process discovered one small organization, the Bonobo Conservation Institute, which had done more to save the bonobos than many much larger organizations.

In BCI Béchard recognized a unique post-colonial model for conservation initiatives which, if replicated, might provide one of the only hopes for making the world a far better and more equitable place.

Part polemic, part travelogue, part natural history, "The Last Bonobo: A Journey Into the Congo" offers a moving story of how a few committed people can affect great and lasting change.

Deni Béchard is the author of Vandal Love, which won the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize, and Cures for Hunger, an IndieNext pick for best memoir/biography in 2012. He has written for the LA Times, Outside, Foreign Policy, Salon.com, Maisonneuve, and The Harvard Review and has travelled to more than 60 countries.

This is a free event, everyone welcome.
