BC Rivers Day Cleanup
September 24, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
September 24 is BC Rivers Day! Join us at Cottonwood Falls Park in Nelson for a cleanup of the creek and surrounding area.
PLEASE NOTE that we will be cleaning around the creek, but also in the creek, so we will have chest waders available for adults to use.
We will be meeting in front of the waterfall, and there will be lots of places to park!
Before proceeding to registration, you are required to fill out a waiver and media release form. You cannot participate in this cleanup unless you have filled out a waiver. The media release form is optional:
We will provide buckets and other cleanup equipment needed, but we recommend bringing the following:
- Shovel (optional)
- Rake (optional)
- Bucket (there will be extra buckets)
- Gardening/work gloves (there will be extra used gloves provided)
- Comfortable and weather appropriate clothing
- Trash pickers if you have a sore back
- Gumboots for muddy areas
- Food and water
A big THANK YOU goes out to our funders Unsmoke Canada, The Great Outdoors Fund, and Regional District of Central Kootenay!
