Youth plant rescue and planting on Bridle Path near Hyannis Dr North Van

  • May 8, 2013 · 9:15 AM

This event is on rain or shine!

While this event is focused on youth, there is limited space for LMGT volunteers to participate as well.

There are 30 spaces available in total

Meeting Spot

We are meeting (click-->) HERE. (NORTH on Hyannis Drive, near the intersection of Hyannis Dr and Berkley Avenue. So, left of the "A" on that google map above where it intercepts the Baden Powell Trail). Parking is available along the road.

Getting yourself there

Carpool. There are often Lower Mainland Green Team volunteers willing to provide a ride! If you need a ride log into your meetup account, click on "join us" on this page and leave a message briefly describing where you can offer or need a ride from. You can also leave a message at the bottom of this page in the box where it says "post a comment". Don't forget to chip in for gas if you get a ride ($5 for every hour of drive is about right).

Your organizer also sends an email reminder to everyone signed up to participate a day before the event and your request for a ride may be included so send an email to: [masked]

    Hey if anyone sees this before the event this morning could you tell Lyda I won't be able to make it because the traffic is horrible and my mum can't drive me now that it's past 8? Thank you!
