The Annual Fraser River Cleanup returns to Gill Bar for the 13th year! Join us on Saturday, March 28th from 10 am to 1 pm for a clean up and celebration hosted by Fraser Riverkeeper and Woodtone.

 

RSVP on Facebook

 

Meet us at the end of Gill Road where attendants will help you park and direct you to Cleanup Central. We'll hand out gloves, buckets, pickers, and high visibility vests to ensure everyone's safety. After a morning of combing the river banks, we'll celebrate our hard work with an annual BBQ hosted by Restaurant 62 and a prize draw.

All are welcome to join this annual tradition—more helping hands ensure that more garbage and debris can be removed from this ecologically sensitive area. Volunteers are asked to wear warm layers, sturdy boots and bring a reusable beverage container to the event.

Ocean Ambassadors Canada and Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup will bring games and host information tables to teach us how we can bring positive change to our waters.

The cleanup would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. Thank you to Woodtone, Fraser Riverkeeper, Restaurant 62, Big K Clothing, City of Chilliwack, Bi Central, Chilliwack Minor Base Ball, Fraser Basin Council, Fred's Custom Tackle, FVIDA, Fraser Valley Salmon Society, Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, GFL Waste Management, Glad, Fresh Water Fisheries Society of BC (GoFish BC), Great River Fishing Adventures, Hub International, Ocean Ambassadors Canada, Pick Eco, The Refillery, Sto:lo Business Association, Cabela's.
