Weedbuster & Restoration Events

TruckFullofInvasivesBe a champion for native plants! Tackle invasive species: non-native plants that have become established and replaced native species. Join the Burnaby Lake Park Association in removing English Ivy, Lamium, Periwinkle, Purple Policeman’s Helmet, and Scotch broom from around Burnaby Lake.

Dress for the weather and be prepared to work off-trail in the woods. We will provide gloves, tools and refreshments.

If you are interested in bringing a community or work group as an activity, please call 604-520-6442 or email the Burnaby Lake Park Association at info@burnabylakepark.ca.
