What we Will be Doing:

  • We’re looking for energetic volunteers to help us clean up and maintain our Windebank Creek property in Mission.
  • This will involve invasive plant removal and some garbage clean up.
  • We will also be planting some willow stakes and dogwood stakes.
  • We will have pizza for lunch while listening to our guest speakers.

Why it’s Helpful:

  • Creating a healthy tree canopy along Windebank Creek in Mission, leads to a healthier stream for salmon to spawn in.
  • This stewardship will help create habitat for local wildlife who also use the area.

Training/Equipment:

  • If you’re able to, bring your own gloves and pruning shears, otherwise, they will be provided.
  • Invasive plant removal and garbage clean up training will be provided on site at the beginning of the day.
  • Shovels and training for willow staking will be provided.

Safety:

  • Wear appropriate clothing for the weather and closed-toed footwear.

Setting:

  • Forested outdoors around a creek.

Location:

  • Windebank Creek, Mission, BC.
  • We will be meeting at the west end of Logan Avenue, Mission (next to Embers BBQ House). Parking available along Logan Ave. and nearby parking lots.
