Planting geared to help pollinators in a wildlife space on Saturday morning

Join the Chilliwack Field Naturalists planting April 7 at the Camp River Wildlife Area

You are invited to “bee-come” part of the solution along with the Chilliwack Field Naturalists.

A Pollinator Planting event is set for April 7 with the help of volunteers who show up at the Camp River Wildlife Area on Camp River Road.

The Chilliwack Foundation has donated a diverse selection of native plants that are friendly to bees and other insect pollinators, which makes them perfect for planting on Saturday morning.

Volunteers of all ages welcome. Bring along a shovel or trowel and wear boots.

Event participants will be meeting at 10:30 a.m. at the cairn located at Camp River and Kitchen.
