The old lady is getting a real facelift this summer.
The annual Cowichan River cleanup is being officially expanded to become a two-day event.
Starting with a big effort in Lake Cowichan Saturday, Aug. 25, the work will continue Sunday, Aug. 26 along the eastern portions down to Cowichan Bay.
"We're cleaning the entire river from the weir to the Bay," said Gerald Thom of the Cowichan Lake and River Stewardship Society Aug. 9.
