Queensborough Shoreline Cleanup Fall 2019 Please join us for our 2nd shoreline cleanup this year, our Fall cleanup is on Saturday, September 28th and will focus on garbage along the shoreline, and we will have a few native plants to plant. Our Spring Blackberry Knockout event had over 25 sets of hands, removing a large amount of emerging blackberries and other invasive plants, in preparation for this fall effort. With funding from an environmental grant from the City of New Westminster, our Queensborough Special Programs Committee is proud to co-ordinate local community volunteers and provide plants, snacks, kids activities and incentives in this great family friendly event. We have work gloves and some tools lent to us by Evergreen and New West Environmental Partners, but bring your own if you have them. Bring your own mug too. This is our 9th year of cleanup along this stretch of the Fraser River in Queensborough and we encourage the whole community to come out, rain or shine, to help us make a River of Difference. Check in at 9:30 am, group photo at 10 am (Thompson Landing Park on South Dyke Road at Dockside Court) and then make your way to any spot along the river to see what trash you can find. Bring it back by noon, we will have snacks and show and tell of all that we have found and then we can start digging in our plants at 12:45. You can also sign up for this event at Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, http://Shorelinecleanup.ca//cleanups/yp5ew or call the Queensborough Community Centre for more information, 604 525-7388, or email queensboroughspecialprograms@gmail.com. We hope to see the whole community come out and make this a huge social event. Laurel Wright QSPC Secretary and Shoreline Cleanup Coordinator
