Yumi and I put in three hours of sweat equity into helping to pull invasive English Ivy this morning in SE Burnaby with the Lower Mainland Green Team and the Byrne Creek Streamkeepers Society, with support from the City of Burnaby Planning and Parks departments.
There were about 40 volunteers who worked for over three hours, including a break.
Our streamkeeper volunteers have partnered with the Green Team several times over the years, and it’s gratifying to see the cleared area steadily expanding. Perhaps the City of Burnaby can provide some native plant species to plant in the fall.
It’s great partnering with the Green Team for they provide a registration/sign-in system, tools, and drinks and snacks.
