City of Burnaby Parks has started a new initiative, organizing invasive plant removals in parks. Though we have been managing invasive plants in Parks for many years, offering workshops, and supporting groups that do invasive removals, we haven’t organized our own removals!
The goal of these events is to get residents into parks, learning about invasive plants, and what they can do about the issue, and then getting the community involved in actually removing invasive plants.
The activities include instruction (no experience necessary), all the tools and materials required, and (of course) snacks/refreshments.The activities include instruction (no experience necessary), all the tools and materials required, and (of course) snacks/refreshments.
The events are led by the Invasive Species Council of Metro Vancouver, so you will be in expert hands.
This is great for families, and youth, and community members who want to meet their neighbours; young children with parents are welcome!
At the link below are a list of events scheduled so far (events scheduled through November so far) – the events are free, and sign-up is through WebReg, using the Bar-code. If you are new to WebReg, contact Burnaby Rec Centre to help set you up.
