Shoreline Cleanup at Still Creek

Posted on 10/17/2017 by Left Coast

A few members of the Left Coast team got together to do a community cleanup at Still Creek, as part of The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. We volunteer a few times a year as a group because, lucky us, we get time off to do community service!

Takin’ Out the Trash

We’re happy to report that there were relatively low amounts of trash at Still Creek. Among the empty beverage cans and construction waste, the most interesting thing we found was a bike chain.

Get Out, Stay Out

Aside from doing our cleanup duty, it was lovely enjoying the beautiful fall weather and the nature—we spotted a few ducks in the pond! Corinne noticed there were some Himalayan Balsams (aka. Touch-Me-Not plants) and gave us a little botany class. If you’re wondering why they’re referred to as Touch-Me-Nots, watch this video.

Organize Your Own Cleanup!

Overall, it was a great experience, and it didn’t hurt that on our way there and back, many people thanked us for our efforts. We’re looking forward to the next company volunteer day!

    Hi, just a quick note to say thank you for helping out my old swimming hole! As very young children we swam in Still Creek. Back in those days the water was clean and clear!

    Keep up the great work!
