Volunteers turn out to clean up the litter along the Kitimat River at Radley Park on Sept. 30.

KUTE cleans up the river shore

Kitimat Understanding the Environment (KUTE) organized another annual Kitimat River Clean-Up day on a drippy Sunday afternoon.

Kitimat Understanding the Environment (KUTE) organized another annual Kitimat River Clean-Up day on a drippy Sunday afternoon.

On Sept. 30, volunteers gathered under the shelter in the playground at Radley Park to work out a game plan to tidy up the shores of the river. While in some years people will take to all sections of the river, this year due to heavy rain and limited turn-out volunteers kept within Radley Park.

But it’s just as well they did, as less than an hour in some volunteers had already filled their first garbage bag, pulling out litter, fishing lines, and in one case a crumpled lawn chair.

Don’t worry, they warmed up with hot chocolate afterwards.
