Spring cleaning in Lake Cowichan

Just about everything, including a kitchen sink, was found in Beaver Creek and at the BMX bicycle track, during the town’s annual spring cleanup, Sunday, April 17. By the end of the day, over a half ton’s worth of refuse was pulled from the creek, and a large dent had been made toward making the BMX track usable again.

About 30 people showed up to clean the town’s previously litter-filled BMX bicycle track and a stretch of the fish-bearing Beaver Creek, which runs through Rhododendron Park.

In addition to the cleanup, Mesachie Lake Forestry donated several trees. Some were planted along Beaver Creek, while others were given to volunteers to plant elsewhere.

Volunteers came from the Cowichan Lake Salmonid Enhancement Society, the Town of Lake Cowichan, Beaver Lake Resort Campground, and the Centennial Park Society.
