Balsam Blitz at Kanaka Creek

Join us for an invasive blitz at Kanaka Creek Regional Park.  We'll be enhancing riparian habitat by removing Himalayan balsam (aka Policeman's helmet) from the park.  Designated as one of fifteen sensitive streams in BC, Kanaka Creek is a precious community asset, and home to an abundance of salmon, tailed-frogs, dippers and bears. 

In addition to MVERT members, we'll also be joined by the Lower Mainland Green Team and Kanaka Education and Environmental Partnership Society (KEEPS).  This will be a great opportunity to meet like-minded folks who are passionate about helping the environment. 

Metro Vancouver will provide all necessary equipment (e.g. garden gloves, pruners) as well as refreshments (e.g. water, juice, cookies).

This event will run rain or shine, so dress appropriately for the weather.  Sturdy footwear is highly recommended.

We'll be meeting [masked]th Avenue at 9:45 am.  It's a residential street, so please park on the side of the road.
