Put on a long-sleeved shirt, grab a pair of gloves and head down to Luckakuck Creek to help remove blackberry bushes and other invasive plants next weekend.
Fraser Valley Conservancy (FVC) is looking for volunteers to help with its streamside restoration on Aug. 10.
Before FVC can plant more trees and native shrubs they need to make space for them which means removing the invasive species including blackberry bushes and ivy.
FVC staff have been toiling away endlessly over the past year and now they are calling for reinforcements.
They will provide you with all the tools you’ll need to extract your revenge on those pesky, prickly plants that tore your favorite shirt.
Volunteers must be prepared to work in hot conditions, should bring a water bottle, and will need work gloves and good footwear (hiking boots recommended).
FVC is inviting the public to drop in to lend a hand while learning about wildlife in your neighbourhood.
The Luckakuck Creek streamside restoration event is on Saturday, Aug. 10 starting at 9 a.m. and going until 2 p.m. Meet at the Luckakuck Creek trailhead on Luckakuck Place, located off Luckakuck Way on the south side.
