Thank you to the City of Port Moody for your continued support! We’re looking forward to next time already!

The Lower Mainland Green team met on a chilly, beautiful Saturday morning at Rocky Point Park to remove an incredible amount of English Ivy and Himalayan Blackberry. The team demonstrated a great amount of leadership, and there were plenty of laughs, stories, and smiles the entire time!

Participant Quotes

I think that this program builds a sense of community. Everyone who attended was very kind and willing to help despite how cold it was outside. People really enjoyed going outside and helping the local environment.

I enjoyed the teamwork with a great bunch of people!

This program positively impacts natural parks and helps the community learn about the negative impacts of invasive plants on native species.
