A pair of volunteers jumped right in to help clean up a local stream. LEPS and Bertrand Creek Enhancement Society invite the public to help clean up the Aldergrove stream's bed and banks on Saturday

Bertrand Creek clean up scheduled for Aug. 22

Volunteers are invited to come and help clean up the fish-bearing stream in Aldergrove

Plan to bring your friends and your gumboots, and join LEPS and the Bertrand Creek Enhancement Society as they host an in-stream clean-up on Saturday, Aug. 22, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Volunteers will be invited to hop into hip waders and walk in the water while removing trash from Bertrand Creek, throughout the urban core of Aldergrove.

The clean-up will offer helpers the opportunity to view the salmon-bearing creek from a whole new perspective, get a little dirty, better the community and have a lot of fun in the process.

Residents of all ages are invited to participate — whether they want to get their feet wet or would prefer to stick to dry land.

There will be opportunities for both wading in the creek and removing floating/embedded non-natural debris (trash, shopping carts, wood, etc) as well as using work gloves and litter pickers to remove accumulated trash from the stream banks.

LEPS will provide work gloves, a limited number of chest waders (men’s sizes 6 to 12), litter pickers and trash/recycling bags. Participants are encouraged to wear gumboots and clothing that can get dirty.

Snacks and refreshments will be provided.

They will meet in the parking lot on the north side of Extra Foods at the Aldergrove Centre Mall on 272 Street, north of Fraser Highway.

Anyone who would like to help out is asked to RSVP with the number of people attending, so LEPS can plan accordingly.
