PHOTOS: Litter, damage to trees reported at Sandy Cove

While out at Sandy Cove recently, Ilonka Kuhl-Harris discovered significant damage to trees in addition to litter strewn about in the water and along the beach.

The damage and litter has been reported to the RCMP. Sgt. Mike Sargent indicated the tree damage had been previously reported and was grateful to receive reports of the litter and damage. The damage to the trees looks nearly identical to damage caused to at least 17 trees in East Sector Park in Harrison Hot Springs in winter.
