Volunteers Clean Up Canal Park Beach

Canal Park Brewing Company Hosts What May Become Monthly Event

DULUTH, Minn. – Volunteers hit the beach today to help keep the Lake Superior shoreline clean.

Canal Park Brewing Company hosted a beach cleanup where volunteers put in the time to help keep Lake Superior clean and healthy.

“We love the Great Lakes,” said Paul Kaz, co-owner of Canal Park Brewing Company. “We love the beach ourselves. We’re located right here on the lake and we just want to do our part to keep the water clean.”

This was the first  clean up put on by Canal Park Brewing and they were very happy with the turnout.

“I brought my four year old with,” said volunteer Hadley Randall. “I think it’s important to teach her about not polluting, keeping our area clean. She’s already noticing all the little garbage and stuff around the lakewalk.”

Volunteers picked up trash along the beach and took note of what they were throwing away.

“We really want to know what is out there and what we can do to help clean up and prevent some of this in the future,” said Kaz.

For many volunteers, it was a fun way to lend a helping hand.

“It’s great to be outside in the middle of September we’re not going to get too many nice days left so it’s a great day to be out and helping,” said Randall.

It’s an important service to all who use Lake Superior.

“We all love water,” said Kaz. “We use it everyday and we certainly use it in our brewing. It’s a key ingredient in beer so it’s important to us that way as well.”

Volunteers got a free beer for donating their time.

“A little incentive for everybody,” said Kaz. “I think it’s just a good way to reward people. A good deed should go rewarded.”

Canal Park Brewing would like to make the beach clean up a monthly event, so they encourage everybody to grab a friend and put in a little time that goes a long way for the greatest great lake.
