Fourteen members of the Sargeant Bay Society and the Sargeant Bay Streamkeepers got together on Sept. 28 for the annual Sargeant Bay Provincial Park berm cleanup event. Each year volunteers clear extra brush and debris from the upper berm. This helps to provide better viewing for the public of Colvin Lake, improves trail access on the berm and allows upkeep of the fish ladder as the coho and chum salmon begin to return in the fall. The Sargeant Bay Society was formed in 1978 to help protect the sensitive habitats in the area when the land was originally slated for development. The society worked for many years to achieve this preservation goal, and in 1990 Sargeant Bay became a provincial park. More history and ways to get involved can be found at sargbay.ca.
