Stashing the Trash
Vedder River Cleanup July 14
Released by Vedder River Cleanup Coalition/Voice file photo
Frank Kwak looks over some of the garbage picked up on the Chilliwack River last year.
he 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 will 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.
