Hello All,

It is that time of year once again! Our annual river clean up is right around the corner, and we would love to see you! This is one event that has been close to my heart. As a frequent user of our local waterways this is a personal way I can give back to the sport that gives me so much enjoyment. Every year we keep getting bigger and this year will be no exception. Last year we went national on Global & CBC News.....Again this year there will be a Free BBQ for our volunteers, and the Vancouver Aquarium will be setting up shop along side us along with Starbucks and other great local businesses that have come together for this great cause. Education and awareness is our focus! Saturday, March 28, 2015 at 10:00 AM · See below for more details.2014 Clean Up Coverage

Hey thanks for your interest. I agree, it is the perfect way to give back. Especially for those who don't have much time and busy schedules.

I just wanted to say a Big THANK YOU to all who made it out for this event. :D Without your support we wouldn't have been able to accomplish what we did out there. Fantastic job everyone! The official numbers are not in yet in terms of volunteer numbers and how much garbage that was removed from the river, however I will post that once we get them. I will guess and say at least 200 people turned out to pitch in, and we removed roughly 6-8 tons of garbage....Official numbers to follow. Again well done everyone and thank you! See you all next year.
