It is time for the 2014 Cowichan River Clean-Up. The event will take place over two days, Saturday August 17th and Sunday August 18th.
It aims to get volunteers out on the river, picking up debris from Cowichan Lake all the way down to the estuary in Cowichan Bay. Last year over 1.7 tons of garbage was taken out of the river along with over 4,000 empty beverage containers.
Volunteers can join in on Saturday for the upper end of the river, Lake Cowichan to Sandy Pools or on Sunday for the lower end, Sandy Pools to the estuary.
There is a continental registration breakfast at 9:30 both days and a post clean-up thank you BBQ with prizes for all participants. Help keep our Heritage River healthy and clean, and come out to the annual river clean up this weekend.
