On Saturday, October 15, a group of local Trout Unlimited (TU) volunteers showed up at the Lions Pavilion near Safeway with waders, rubber gloves and trash bags. They spent the next few hours scouring the Fraser River from County Road 804 to Rendezvous for trash and litter. They came up with quite a haul including foam mattress toppers, milk crates, plastic chairs, beer cans, insulation, T-posts along with lots of plastic and general litter.

TU targeted this area for cleanup because it’s an incredibly popular, high-traffic, wildly visible zone that represents the local riparian environment to more of the public than any other area in the entire county.
