We are looking for up to 20 volunteers to join us on the water on Saturday June 3rd @ 12:30 pm for a day of Yellow Flag Iris seed removal!
While beautiful, Yellow Flag Iris is a highly invasive species that dominates wetland ecosystems and threatens biodiversity. It's spread can be controlled by the removal of flowers and seed pods. We are seeking volunteers that can bring their own chest waders, canoes, kayaks, or SUPs and help us remove seeds in the marshes and lagoons of the GBHNR. Volunteers must be comfortable reaching and bending out of their boat to pull the flowers and seed heads. They must also be able to transport and lift their own watercraft.
This is a rare opportunity to be on the water of the nature reserve and enjoy the beautiful weather and wildlife, while contributing to the preservation of this important wetland habitat!
Fill out the form below to join us for this event! The completion of a waiver will be required for all participants. Contact us @ [email protected] or 604-823-6603 with any questions.
