LUCAS DENOV

RECIPIENT OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL HERO AWARD

Lucas Denov, a student at West Rouge Junior Public School, has taken it upon himself to routinely clean up all the garbage and recycling in local Scarborough neighbourhoods to keep outdoor greenspaces safe and clean for his community and the local wildlife. He goes from park to park and street to street picking up, and sorting waste and recycling. Lucas’ parents and neighbors have supported his efforts through helping source extra supplies.
