• Whip Harvesting and Staking at Brae Island Living Retaining Walls

    9451 Glover Rd

    Help us plant willow and red osier whips at the living retaining walls along Bedford Channel at Brae Island Regional Park!

    The harvested whips are used as part of an ongoing bio-engineering wattle wall project to shore up the banks at Bedford Channel at Brae Island Regional Park. We'll be staking the whips and once established, the planted red osier and willow whips help to stabilize the river bank against erosion and protect valuable wildlife habitat.

    Things to consider:

    • We'll be working on a sandy and potentially muddy river bank, so wear sturdy closed-toe shoes or boots.
    • Come dressed for the weather and outdoor physical activity. Wear comfortable clothing you don't mind getting dirty.
    • The event is on rain or shine!
    • We will provide gloves and all needed equipment.
    • Bring water with you (and snacks if needed).
    • Please stay home if you are feeling any cold or flu-like symptoms.

    We'll be meeting just in front of the washrooms near the Brae Island parking lot at 12:30pm and will walk over to the work site together.

    We hope to see all registered attendees there! Please let us know if you have any questions.

  • Blackberry Obliteration at West Creek Wetlands

    West Creek Wetlands - watch for vehicles parked on side of road

    We are digging up blackberries in West Creek Wetlands reserve every other Tuesday and would love the help! This project is on year 8 of removing blackberries from this reserve that isn't accessible to the public and we are making great strides.

    The site can be wet, we suggest boots! We will bring shovels, clippers and gloves but if you have your own you prefer please bring them.

    Please contact [masked] for info or to register. We cancel in snow and strong winds. It is too hard to find the blackberries under the snow and we are working under a lot of older alder and cottonwood so wind can be a safety issue. If you don't register, we can't let you know if the event is cancelled.
