An outdoor concert on Saturday is the latest step by people working to preserve the Creekside Forest in Aldergrove.

Langley Township council had earlier approved sale of the property for residential development, but in December called for another look at an arborist’s report on trees on the property, which at one time housed the Aldergrove sewer plant.

The Opus One Women’s Choir will perform the concert at 10:30 a.m. Saturday in the forested area of the property. The choir is directed by Brenda Wilson.

Organized by Watchers of Langley Forests (WOLF) and Aldergrove Neighbours, it is billed as “celebrating the new year with a fond farewell to the Christmas season.”

It is a concert for the whole family and will feature a singalong and refreshments.

People who are interested in attending should meet at 27540 28 Avenue. The Google maps link is https://goo.gl/maps/unCI6.
