The CSISS and NCES are partnering with Mandy Kellner of Kingbird Consulting on her project which aims to plant native vegetation in the area near the Downie Ponds and the Columbia River near Revelstoke. This area is currently overgrown with invasive reed canary grass. We will be planting willow and dogwood stakes on and are looking for enthusiastic volunteers of all ages.
If you would like to help us out in the awesome endeavour, meet us at the Inukshuk at the entrance to the Greenbelt at 1pm on Sunday April 27th. Bring clothes for the elements and a shovel/pitchfork/pruners if you have them. Free pizza and work gloves will be provided! We are grateful to the CBT and to the CSRD for providing funding for this event.
