Come help us plant 1000 native trees and shrubs along Lane Creek to make Mission a healthier and happier habitat for all living creatures! A free lunch will be given to all participants! As well, free seedlings will be given to all participants and passers-by so they can plant a native tree and/or shrub in their own backyard.
Lane Creek is an important habitat for many species of wildlife, as well as a beautiful walking trail for Mission residents to enjoy. By planting native trees and shrubs along Lane Creek, we will stabilize stream banks, provide shade, help the soil absorb rainfall, reduce pollutants, and create a diverse habitat and travelling corridor for urban wildlife.
Learn how to select, propagate, and plant native trees and shrubs in an urban riparian habitat, while also planting trees whose shade you’ll walk under for years to come!
We will provide all necessary equipment, as well as refreshments. However, if you have your own gardening gloves you would rather use, please feel free to bring them.
Please dress in closed-toed shoes, long sleeves and long pants, and come prepared to brave any kind of weather!
Children are welcome as long as they come with parental supervision.
We’ll be meeting at the back of the Mission Library parking lot at 9:00 a.m.
