Big Thank You to our dedicated volunteers for ReNewton's Clean Sweep event on Sat April 19th.
Thanks to your hard work, we were able to clean up a large section of Hyland Creek. As we worked we engaged in discussions about our neighbourhood and environs. I think we all came away with a greater sense that we are part of something bigger here. We are a community and we need to take ownership of our own neighbourhood.
We can't rely on government to do everything.

First volunteer on site wasted no time getting started. Way to go!
We found remnants of a camp in the woods next to this foot bridge at 138th St.
|This guy deserves a special award. Picking up bag after bag of dog waste . Seems that many dog owners will pick up after their pets if someone is watching, then toss the bags into the bushes and trees. How nasty and disrespectful is that?|
|Two of our energetic volunteers- thanks neighbours!|
|Hyland Creek is home to 2 species of salmon that spawn here every Fall. Let's work together to keep it clean, green and healthy for our Chum and Coho.|
Is a public awareness campaign needed to get the word out?

|We need to crack down on this continuing problem in the city. We have enough challenges. |
This isn't doing us any favours.
Come on people.
This is not the image we want people to associate with Surrey
- and it shows no signs of improving.
One casualty of rampant growth.
What do you think? What can we do to get this under control?
