All disturbed land areas were re-vegetated with native plants by the Fraser Valley Watersheds Coalition and local volunteers. The show illustrates the wide range of plants and animals that inhabit and define the wetlands. All this is made accessible to walkers, joggers, equestrians, and cyclists by a first class trail system jointly funded by the City of Chilliwack Parks Operations and the Rotary Club of Chilliwack. Working together with DFO and FVWC allowed the construction of ecologically sensitive trails that combines comfortable walking with great sight-seeing – bird watching, plant identification, as well as spawning channels in action.

The Coldest Night of the Year is a nationwide walk-a-thon to raise money for local organizations working with homeless, hurting, and hungry individuals in their community.Money raised through the Coldest Night of the Year in Chilliwack goes to Cyrus Centre Chilliwack. Cyrus Centre is a non-profit organization that offers 24 hour a day support to homeless and vulnerable youth in the Fraser Valley and Fraser Canyon. Cyrus Centre is the only emergency shelter for youth in the Fraser Valley. In 2017 Cyrus Centre hopes to expand it's current emergency shelter from 5 beds to 9. In order to do this, we need more funds! Money raised through the Coldest Night of the Year will go towards expanding Cyrus Centre Chilliwack's shelter. In September and October of 2016 Cyrus Centre had to turn away over 30 youth from our shelters because we were full every night. Expanding our shelter will ensure that more youth have access to emergency shelter and a safe warm place to sleep at night. 44% of homeless people in Chilliwack are youth. To participate in the walk go to www.cnoy.org and register as a walker, join an existing team or start your own! Opportunities for corporate sponsorship are also available. Email maren@cyruscentre.com for more information! CNOY uses an online fundraising platform so raising money and donating is just a click away! It's cold out there. Let's do something about it!
