Weedbusters 2017-2

BCInvasiveSpeciesActionMonth
Be a Champion for Native Plants!

May has been proclaimed Invasive Species Action Month in BC. Take positive action against invasive species. Learn all about native and invasive plants and animals, and how to tell them apart.

Join the Burnaby Lake Park Association in tackling and removing invasive species: non-native plants that have become established and replaced native species around Burnaby Lake. We’ll provide gloves, tools, and snacks. Dress for the weather and be prepared to work off-trail in the woods. Join us! Ages 8+

Check here to see how to get to the park by transit or driving.

You can request to be added to the email list that gets sent out with confirmation of meeting locations and times, or if there are any weather related updates.

Rocky Mountain Soap Women’s Run/Walk

The Rocky Mountain Soap Women’s Run/Walk was initially started in Canmore,to create safe, fun and inclusive events for women while supporting charitable organizations both culturally and financially. Rocky Mountain Soap handcrafts soaps, lotions, oils and other personal body care products with 100% natural, organic, and non-gmo ingredients.

The Burnaby Lake Park Association will be doing community outreach at this great event on Sunday, July 10 at the Burnaby Lake Sports Fields by helping with recycling/composting and an information table about the BLPA and the park. If you’d like to volunteer with the recycling, please contact Irene at BLPAirene@gmail.com.

Otherwise, you can join in the fun and support all of the girls and women running and walking in the Rocky Mountain Soap Women’s Run. Be part of an unforgettable experience and get involved as a volunteer.
