A proud mom and on a Vedder cleanup in 2012.
n Sunday, September 24th, we will be hosting our 17th World Rivers Day celebration at the Chilliwack Fish and Game Club at 48685 Chilliwack Lake Road. Registration starts at 8:30am, and the clean up runs until around noon. Then we'll host a volunteer appreciation BBQ and Prize Raffle.
Come check out the displays and information about what other groups are doing in our community, as we welcome back our friends at Fraser Riverkeeper, Waterwealth Project, Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC, and more.
We extend a huge thank
you to the Adopt-A-River Program participants and groups who are out there
making a difference throughout the year. We could not do what we do without
Thanks to Tim Hortons and the Chilliwack Water Store for providing refreshments.
• This event goes rain or shine
• Wear sturdy footwear
• Bring a travel mug/water bottle. We want to eliminate single use cups at our cleanup events!
See you on Sunday September 24th!
With many thanks on behalf of all of us at the Chilliwack Vedder River Cleanup Society.
