Weedbusters 2018-1

Join us on Earth Day tackling and removing invasive species! These are 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. Ages 8+.

We’re meeting at the Glencarin Trail entrance and will plan to sweep the south shore  of English Ivy & Scotch Broom.

To keep up to date with any changes, please check our social media and website closer to the date where we will have the latest news with any changes (e.g. due to weather or things beyond our control). You can also sign up here to be on our email list to receive reminders for the next Weedbusters event.

We will take the time to have a very short meeting to conduct our AGM business.

Then we will break for refreshments which will provide an opportunity for you to meet the BLPA directors and other volunteers, pick up a Weedbusters schedule or the latest Check It Out, and have the chance to ask any questions you might have.

Full AGM agenda will be published/emailed by April 4.

Space is limited. Please RSVP so we can plan for refreshments and seating.
