River Cleanup- Sept 24
« on: September 12, 2017, 11:12:50 PM »

I received the following information on this event from Nikki Rekman of the
Chilliwack Vedder River Cleanup Society.  The VWC has sponsored the section of the river from Sleese Creek to Borden Creek.  Hope to see lots of paddlers giving back to the river!
