Get dirty and help local organizations with restoration efforts in Harrop. We are partnering with Friends of Kootenay Lake Stewardship Society (FOKLSS) to plant native vegetation at Harrop Wetland as part of FOKLSS’ 2022 Harrop Wetland Enhancement Project! We will be planting native seeds, plugs, pots, live stakes, shrubs, and herbs. Over time, this vegetation will create microhabitats for species and provide share cover to help improve the climate resiliency of the wetland.
Location: Harrop Wetland located on the western side of Sunshine Bay Regional Park (accessible from Erindale Road)
Dates & times to volunteer*:
