Up-purposing invasive plants in Stanley Park

We are very happy to be continuing our relationship with Stanley Park Ecology Society in re-purposing invasive plants for various stewardship activities again this season!

More Bio-netting from English Ivy, and continued work on the beautiful North Creek Trail.

Dates to Know!

Friday July 7 5.30 – 8.30pm

Bio-netting being knit on the roof of the Nature House ( north foot of Alberni street)

This is an event great for  drop in’s, but we are looking for a core group of people to commit to learning the spool-knitting technique and working for the evening with us to ensure we get enough knitted ivy netting. If that is you, please grab a ticket!
