VIDEO: A quick December tour of the Chilliwack River Valley

An hour spent in Chilliwack’s beautiful backyard to overshadow negative stories of mess left behind

All too often there are reports of garbage left behind in the Chilliwack River Valley, and more recently the takedown of a notorious homeless camp on the banks of the Chilliwack River.

But it’s important to note the area is largely unspoiled and is home to hundreds of people who enjoy its rustic charm and rural feel.

From whitewater rafting to mountain biking to sports fishing, the valley is full of wildlife, plant life and places to explore.
