Sunday, March 1st - Lane Creek Cleanup & Fraser River
Thanks to all of our volunteers and the Dawoodi Bohra community who led this cleanup. This is part of the Bohra's Turning the Tide initiative - a global drive to eliminate single-use plastic and rid bodies of water of plastic pollution. It is also a registered Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. We successfully cleared 563 pounds of debris, scrap metal and recycling from the creek and river. Great job everyone!

Saturday, May 30th - We held a successful cleanup with the Serenata Singers Choir group. This community group participated in our Spring Fundraiser program and earned $400 for cleaning up 5 km of Dewdney Trunk Road in Mission. Special thanks to Joyce and all of her volunteer group!
