Join the Minnekhada Park Association for an invasive species removal event near the lodge and wetlands of Minnekhada Regional Park. We'll be pulling out none-native plant species to help restore the ecological balance and give the native species a chance to thrive. Everyone is welcome! Tools (i.e. gloves, shovels, etc.) and refreshments will be provided. The event will take place rain or shine so please come prepared to get dirty. Sturdy footwear/rubber boots are recommended.
Parking for this event will be at the Quarry Road Parking Lot - please give yourself 20 minutes to walk the 1km Lodge Trail from the Quarry Road Parking Lot work site (Picnic Area), there will be signs along the trail leading the way. Please do not park at the Lodge Parking lot.
There'll be an EcoBlitz wrap-up and appreciation lunch on Oct. 23 at Surrey Bend Regional Park. All participants are invited. Please RSVP on the MeetUp site.
