Volunteers Needed for the annual Gorge Waterway Cleanup - September 27, 2014
Join us for the annual Gorge Waterway Cleanup and help clean the shoreline and waters of the Gorge.
Every year, volunteers pitch in to clean up the water and shoreline along the Gorge. This improves the habitat for local wildlife and the look of the area for local residents and community members. We invite everyone to participate in this important event.
Volunteers will clean the shoreline along the Gorge Waterway and a volunteer dive team will retrieve debris from the ocean floor. Bring your own boots and gloves if you can or borrow ours.
Afterwards, share stories of what you hauled in with other Cleanup volunteers over refreshments and a grab-and-go-lunch.
To get involved as a volunteer, a participating group or a community sponsor, contact Suzette at the Burnside Gorge Community Centre at 250-388-5251, ext 225 or email@example.com.
