Clean up slated for Pegleg
The Chilliwack Times
Published: Friday, April 25, 2008
Fraser Riverkeepers, in partnership with Woodtone Building Products, and other friends of the Fraser River, will have a cleanup of Pegleg Bar in Chilliwack on April 27, the first Sunday after Earth Day, from 1 to 3 p.m.

Fraser Riverkeeper invites everyone to come to Pegleg Bar for the event. T-shirts, water, snacks and all equipment, including gloves and hand sanitizer, will be provided at the cleanup site, located at the end of McSween Road. Volunteers should come prepared for the weather and terrain. The event will focus on beautifying the riverfront at Pegleg Bar.

Pegleg Bar provides easy access to the Fraser River for recreational fishing and is one of the more popular and productive bars for fishing without a boat. Bar fishing the Fraser River is a popular way to enjoy the river, providing prime gathering spots for socializing and recreating. Unfortunately, such easy access to the Fraser River has resulted in the accumulation of various types of garbage from aluminum cans to couches.


This event is organized in partnership with Woodtone Building Products. Woodtone has enthusiastically taken on the cleanup, with as many as 50 employees, friends and family expected to participate.

- If you are interested in coming out for the cleanup, contact Lauren Brown at Fraser Riverkeeper via e-mail at [email protected] or phone 778-737-4422.

The clean up was a great success. Loads of people came out and lent a hand. In the end, two huge commercial bins were well on the way to being filled. All sorts of furnature, beds, dismantled auto parts, and just plain trash. You name it, and it most likely got picked up :p One very unlucky guy decided it would be a good day to drive to the river and dump his truck and trailer load of carpet, dry wall, and yard trash. Man he got an ear full from everyone in attendance, and was literally forced away. He claimed he was going to burn it all.. :eek: People just don't get it. :wallbash:

The day was well received, and it looks like this will become a regular event. Sorry for the late notice for those who would've liked to make it out. It's been a crazy two weeks work wise. :p Next time I'll be sure to give plenty of notice.

Finder :cheers:
