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!
Thank you to our volunteers: Natasha, John, Alex, Yu-Xing, Doug, Suzie, Brian, Mia, Oleh, Francis, Alison, Elena, Tyrell, Danielle, Ben, Nathan, Natasha, Jasmine, Steven, Mon, Mary, Diana, Paul, Daniel, Anne Marie, Brian, Daniel, Danielle, and Aaron!

- In total 31 LGMT volunteers came out and removed 7 cubic meters of English Ivy and 1 cubic meter of Himalayan Blackberry. Our efforts totaled more than 62 volunteer hours!
- 7 people were introduced to the park and 3 people had never removed invasive species before!
- Thank you to our in-kind sponsors who donated thank you gifts to our community: EarthRated dog poop bags, eco-friendly soaps from Eartheasy, and West Coast Seeds.
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.
