Rivers Day Volunteer Plant Pull

If build­ing board­walks in rainy, muddy con­di­tions isn’t your thing, how about weed­ing? This Sunday, Sep­tem­ber 25, you can help cel­e­brate Rivers Day at Mackay Creek in Hey­wood Park (North Van­cou­ver, Marine Drive and Hamil­ton Avenue) from 10am-2pm. Join the City of North Van­cou­ver, Ever­green and other com­mu­nity groups to remove inva­sive plants and plant local species in the park. Tools, plants and light refresh­ments will be pro­vided. No need to RSVP, just show up!
