Kayak club holds annual Gorge clean up

Members Victoria Canoe and Kayak club held their annual thing Gorge clean-up.

This year it was different, said member Wendy Clapp, as the members had to work harder to find trash than in years earlier.

“We didn’t find as much as we usually do,” Clapp said. “There seemed to be less trash, perhaps people are throwing less garbage into the Gorge.”

There were the usual suspects, an old tire, pieces of plastic, and broken foam sections of dock.

The club is gearing up for its 50th anniversary, Sept. 18 at the VCKC clubhouse along the Gorge Waterway.
