New Brighton Park Blackberry removal 30 Mar 2014

The Lower Mainland Green Team removed Himalayan Blackberry at New Brighton Park in Vancouver!

Thank you to the Vancouver Park Board for supporting us (Megan and Nick)

Big thank you to all the Lower Mainland Green Team volunteers, especially for working in the rain for 3 hours: Rick, Eric, Adrian, Tiffany and Liz

Highlights

  • 6 volunteers contributed 18 hours
  • Volunteers came from Vancouver, Port Moody, Burnaby and Surrey
  • 4 volunteers had never been to New Brighton Park before
  • 1 volunteer had never removed Himalayan Blackberry before
  • We removed around 800 pounds of blackberry
  • We liberated 15 apple trees
  • It rained for the entire volunteer work party, but we still got a lot of work done!
  • We also got to do a little bit of dancing for NSHG Films (they're making a short video of our volunteers at work)
