A portion of Chester Creek is much cleaner after around 30 people spent Saturday morning pulling trash from the creek and the banks.
Quantum Spatial has been cleaning the creek between Davenport Fields and Sitka Park for three years.
They found half of a "Transformers" poster, and a denim shirt and jeans that they said looked like they had been ripped by a bear. A water-logged sleeping bag and blanket, and at least six needles were added to the haul.
The biggest find was a whole pile of propane tanks, enough to barbecue your salmon for years to come.
As the group headed back to their cars along the creekside trail, passing runners and bikers thanked them for cleaning up the creek.
