Last year’s inaugural cleanup was attended by volunteers including Steelhead Society

of BC members and directors, members of the community, anglers, kayakers, and

university students. An estimated 2 tonnes of garbage were removed from the

Squamish watershed area including, Cheakamus, Mamquam and Squamish rivers.
