Southern British Columbia’s Chilliwack River is the most heavily used recreational river in this province. Unfortunately, that comes with a price. Each year, garbage from small litters to large abandoned items can be found along trails that lead to the river and its banks. Since 2002, local residents and recreational users have taken part in 28 Chilliwack River cleanups. On April 17th, we joined 150 other volunteers to remove garbage from this river so freshet would not wash them away into the Pacific Ocean later on this month. We hope this video can inspire other communities to get involved and keep their local watersheds clean. Please visit Chilliwack Vedder River Cleanup Coalition’s website for more information.
