Frank Kwok looks at the trash brought in by the 240 volunteers in the Chilliwack River Valley Vedder River Cleanup on BC River's Day in September 2010.


he next Chilliwack Vedder River clean-up is our BC Rivers Day celebration, which takes place on Sunday, September 28, at the Chilliwack Fish and Game club at 48685 Chilliwack Lake Road.


Registration is 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and the clean-up goes until noon.


Then at noon, participants are invited to stick around for a BBQ and prize raffle. Thanks again to Tim Horton's and the Chilliwack Water Store for the refreshments and the myriad of prize donors.

The cleanup happens rain or shine so please bring appropriate gear for the weather conditions, sturdy footwear, and a refillable water-bottle (we are trying to reduce the amount of single-use water-bottles).

Thanks for your ongoing support of the Chilliwack Vedder River Clean-Up Society.
