Wood Lake a little cleaner

The shoreline of Wood Lake is a little cleaner thanks to the efforts of a handful of volunteers who gave up their Sunday to clear trash from the local lake.

Bags of plastics, Styrofoam and other garbage was collected along the banks of the popular Okanagan fishing lake.

Wind, rain and run off flush the materials into the lake, but sometimes it is simply tossed there by people.

World Ocean Day is June 8 and and people around the world are encouraged to clean up local waterways.
