The Columbia Shuswap Invasive Species Society and the North Columbia Environmental Society are partnering with Mandy Kellner of Kingbird Consulting on a project that 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 out in this awesome endeavour, meet at the Inukshuk at the entrance to the Greenbelt at 1 pm on Sunday, April 27. Bring clothes suitable for the elements and a shovel/pitchfork/pruners if you have them. Free pizza and work gloves will be provided! The CSISS and NCES are grateful to the CBT and to the CSRD for providing funding for this event.
