Thank you for visiting the official website of Chilliwack Vedder River Cleanup Society! CVRCS is a not-for-profit society that was formed in 2002 by a group of dedicated people who regularly use the Chilliwack/Vedder River for recreational purposes. Our goal is to keep this magnificent river clean so its beauty can still be appreciated by many generations to come.
On this website, you will be able to gather important information such as our upcoming cleanup events, Adopt-a-River program and tips that you may use to improve your local watershed's health. If you utilize the Chilliwack Vedder River frequently, we welcome you to participate in our group river cleanups or adopt a section of the river. Your support is important to CVRCS.
We will once again be hosting three river cleanups for the Chilliwack/Vedder River in 2013! The dates and locations are:
250 volunteers took part in our first cleanup of 2013 on April 20th and a total of 4,370kg of garbage were collected from Chilliwack River.
See photographs of this cleanup on this page.
In 2012, a total of 616 volunteers participated in our three cleanups, putting in 2,464 volunteer hours. We collected 5.72 tonnes of material.
