Ivy Pull at Aldergrove Regional (March 1 2014)

The Lower Mainland Green Team removed English Ivy in Aldergrove Regional Park in Aldergrove. Our 3rd year in a row!

Thank you to our host Metro Vancouver Parks East Area (Roy)!

Thank you to all the LMGT volunteers: Jeff, Denny, Lisa, Giselle, Andy, Vicki, and Lyda! And, thank you to our LMGT leaders who helped supervise: Joshua and Diana.

  • A patch of invasive bamboo on the site was also taken out by Vicki, one of our volunteers.
  • Two of the volunteers (Andy and Joshua!) rode their bikes to the event, despite the cold!
  • Our host, Roy, gave us a great background on the history of the park and endangered species in the area
  • It began snowing in the middle of the event, but it did not stop the enthusiastic volunteers from continuing their work.
