Edmonds Clean Sweep

The Byrne Creek Streamkeepers joined in the Edmonds Clean Sweep today and signed up an amazing 42 people who helped clean up the area around the Edmonds Skytrain station and along Byrne Creek in southeast Burnaby. A big hand to everyone from the community who joined in to help our efforts near the creek, and the teams working on Edmonds and on Kingsway.

Thanks to the Edmonds Town Centre Business & Community Association, Burnaby RCMP and Burnaby Parks for helping arrange and manage the event. And thanks to Burnaby Firefighters for providing refreshments after.

It took just half an hour for Yumi and me to fill a heaping wheelbarrow!
