Volunteers like these previously cleaned up the banks of Aldergrove’s Bertrand Creek.

Grubby work vital

LEPS is hosting a stream cleanup in Aldergrove this weekend.

The Langley Environmental Partners Society is inviting the public to an in-stream cleanup in Aldergrove Aug. 22.

The Saturday event will see volunteers clear up trash from the section of the Bertrand Creek that runs through the urban core of the community.

Participants will wade in the creek to pull out junk, shopping carts, wood, and to clear up the stream banks using litter pickers.

The event is family-friendly and all ages are invited to come and help, said Nichole Marples, executive director of LEPS.

LEPS will provide work gloves, litter pickers, and trash and recycling bags, and some chest waders in men’s sizes six to 12.

“Participants are encouraged to wear gumboots and clothing that can get dirty,” noted Marples in the announcement of the event.

There will be snacks and refreshments for attendees.

The event runs 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and volunteers will meet in the parking lot on the north side of the Extra Foods at the Aldergrove Centre Mall on 272nd Street, north of the Fraser Highway.

RSVP to LEPS at 604-532-3511 or email exec_director@leps.bc.ca with the number of people attending.
