A Great River Runs Through Us, Filmed and Produced by Vince Pilon. Runtime: 33 minutes

A Great River Runs Through Us follows the St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental Sciences and the Upper St. Lawrence River Protection Network as they work with over 400 volunteers to hold a community cleanup. Out of grass root beginnings it turned into something with a life of its own.

A Great River Runs Through Us, was filmed during the summer of 2016 as it follows the 5 Cleanups undertaken by the community. During the Cleanups the Upper St. Lawrence River Protection Network worked together with the Adopt a street volunteers, Cornwall Lunker Club and the local Seaway Valley Divers club to accomplish something special.
