Invasive Species Removal on Brae Island
September 14, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
There are quite a few invasive plants in both Brae Island and Derby Reach Regional Parks. On September 14th community volunteers will be removing a patch of invasive ivy on Brae Island. We’d love for you to join us!
Email email@example.com to register yourself or your group – or if you have any questions. We will have supplies ready for everyone who registers.
We are meeting at the day-use area on Brae Island near the parking lot in front of the washrooms at 9:55am. We will then walk about 5 minutes down the trail to the patch of invasive ivy. The address is 9451 Glover Rd, Fort Langley. The event is from 10am to 12:30pm. We really appreciate your interest in preserving our parks and getting outdoors for a great cause! This event is on rain or shine.
Please bring a reusable water bottle with you to the event – DRBIPA is proud to promote plastic-free events and do not offer single-use plastic water bottles. We will be providing snacks for volunteers and all the tools /materials needed, like gloves, clippers, and waste bags.
What to bring
– Water bottle with LOTS of water
– Sturdy shoes to work in such as hiking shoes
– Clothing you do not mind getting dirt on, rain gear if needed
– Long pants and sleeves
Invasive plant species spread quickly and can displace native plants and prevent native plant growth. A healthy plant community has a variety of herbs, shrubs, and trees – this helps prevent soil runoff. Invasive plants can prevent trees from becoming established so trees are smaller and produce less cover and this endangers other wildlife. This is one of the reasons we work so hard to conserve our parks and spread awareness.
