Removal of Invasive Flag Iris at the Cheam Lake Wetlands
The BC Wildlife Federation has written to ask if NatureKids would support their stewardship project, Removing Invasive Yellow Flag Iris, from the Cheam Lake Wetlands on June 10 at 10:00 a.m. (the event goes until 4:00, but feel free to leave when it suits your family). We couldn’t be more pleased to lend a hand!
All ages are welcome, bring friends, and work alongside other clubs and volunteers as many hands are needed to place pond liner over freshly-cut invasive species, or plant in areas that were treated last year. Please dress for the weather, and since we are in the wetlands, rubber boots would be an asset. Sun protection, drinks, and snacks are important.
Please find below further details for this activity and let us know if you plan to attend as the organizers need a count since they will be providing pizza and tools – pretty awesome!
Mairi will be leading this group, and we will meet at the Cheam Lake Wetlands parking lot.
Explorer Day Etiquette:
- Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
- Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
- Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
- Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
- Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
- Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
