Habitat Acquisition Trust has an opportunity to visit a protected conservation covenant, not ordinarily open to the public, to help keep in natural. We will be removing invasive Yellow Archangel Lamium (Lamium galeobdolon) from around Cripple Creek, a riparian habitat at the Ivan Island Conservation Covenant in Metchosin.
Ivan Island is not an island in the geographical sense, so no worries, you can drive there! Ask us about the history of this quirky name at the event, if you’re curious. :)
If you would like to help out and enjoy the day outdoors among friends we will be going to Ivan Island on Fri July 28th, from 10 am to 3 pm. Please RSVP for the address! If you will be driving and have space to pick up others or if you would like to come but don’t have transporation, please sign up on the online carpooling document here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1GKDSfytO6p8-hC4uuBesW_l2WqP3X8Ni0jNzmE4YaeM/edit?usp=sharing
Tools, gloves, and lunch are all provided! Be prepared for outdoor work and bring plenty of water for yourself. Sunscreen and hats are likely a good idea given the sun we’ve been having too.
Even if you can’t make it this time we’d be grateful to you for sharing this with your friends!
Come and experience habitat restoration and experience a special place protected by Habitat Acquisition Trust!
This event is made possible by donors from the community and our funders: Sitka, Metchosin Foundation, the District of Metchosin, and Environment Canada.
