Volunteers wade into Bertrand Creek

Bring your friends and join the Great Canadian Shoreline Clean-up in Aldergrove on Sunday, September 7 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Bring your friends and join the Langley Environmental Partners Society (LEPS) and the Bertrand Creek Enhancement Society to participate in the Great Canadian Shoreline Clean-up on Sunday, September 7 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Join the volunteers as they hop into hipwaders to remove debris from Bertrand Creek throughout the urban core of Aldergrove. This is a great opportunity to view this salmon-bearing creek from a whole new perspective, get a little dirty, better your community and have a lot of fun.

The in-stream clean-up is familyfriendly and all ages are invited to participate. There will be opportunities for both wading in the creek and removing floating/embedded non-natural debris, such as trash, shopping carts, wood, and the like, as well as using litter pickers to remove accumulated trash from the stream banks.

LEPS will provide work gloves, limited number of chest waders (men’s size 6 to 12), litter pickers and trash/recycling bags. Participants are encouraged to wear gumboots and clothing that can get dirty as the event will be held rain or shine.

Everyone will be meeting at the parking lot beside Extra Foods at the Aldergrove Mall on 272 Street, north of Fraser Highway.

Please call with the number of people attending, so that organizers can plan accordingly: 604-546-0345, email water@leps.bc.ca or check-in online at http://www.shorelinecleanup.ca/en/cleanup/event/fall2014/bertrand-creek

Snacks and refreshments will be provided by the government of Canada’s Habitat Stewardship Program.
