Meet at the gazebo next to the Prestige Hotel in Nelson B.C. (by dog walk park)
The Central Kootenay Invasive Plant Council, Friends of Kootenay Lake, and the City of Nelson are teaming up to host an Earth Day Shoreline Restoration Event on April 26th in Nelson, B.C. This will be an exciting opportunity for community members to do something positive for Kootenay Lake on Earth Day. The event will include the removal of the invasive plant, common tansy, and restoration of the site with native willow and red-osier dogwood. By reducing the amount of invasive plants along the shores of Kootenay Lake we can help to protect the lakes immense values.
Interested in helping? We are inviting people to come down to the dog walk park (adjacent to the Prestige Hotel 701 Lakeside Dr.) from 10am to 1pm on April 26th. Bring a pair of work gloves and shovel (if you can) and we will supply the rest of the tools. There will also be outreach booths set up by local environmental groups as well as free chili, cupcakes and refreshments.
