Clean-up at Heron Reserve April 14
Submitted by Chilliwack-Vedder River Cleanup Coalition/Voice file photo
Kids learning about keeping the rivers
clean last year in the Chilliwack River Valley.
cleanup is really important as we need to get all the garbage off the river
bank before freshet begins, which will wash anything into the Fraser and
eventually the ocean.
Chilliwack Vedder River Cleanup Society will be hosting its first 2012
cleanup on Saturday April 14th.
The meeting place will once again be at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve
at the end of Sumas Prairie Road. Sign-up starts at 8:30am and volunteers
till be assigned a section of the river to pick up garbage. The whole event
will finish by Noon.
Tim Hortons will be supplying coffee, donuts, muffins once again and we'll
make sure there'll be juice etc for kids as well. Please bring appropriate
clothing (waders, waterproof gear) as the weather can be quite unpredictable
during this time of the year. Garbage bags, pick-up tools, latex gloves will
be available for you as well. It is a good idea to bring a pair of
working/garden gloves for yourself.
