On April 26, the GUF Society and a crew of hard-working volunteers cleaned up the Nahounli Creek area near the bridge.
Berit Christensen, a member of the society, was thrilled with the turnout and the overall results.
“Not only does it look better, but we were able to stop a lot of plastic from entering the creek.”
The GUF Society has also recently made a $3000 donation for the purchase of reusable dishes and cutlery for the Fort St. James Community Centre.
According to the society, the majority of waste produced at community events comes from disposable food and beverage containers and they wish to provide a greener alternative.
The GUF Society appreciates the continued commitment by the community in reducing event-generated waste in Fort St. James.
If you are interested in joining the society for more community activities, the next regular meeting will be held on May 16 at 6:30 p.m. at the David Hoy Elementary School library.
All are welcome.
