Lend a green thumb to help plant the trailside of the Jubilee Parkway Connector Trail.

Join Greenways Land Trust this Saturday to plant this area with native plants.

There are over 300 native plants, shrubs and small trees to plant alongside Campbell River’s newest trail.

The two and a half kilometre Jubilee Connector trail provides the missing link for a 25 kilometre trail network around Campbell River named the Greenways Loop.

“This planting will help to add visual interest, wildlife habitat and increase the biodiversity of the area the trail,” said trail planting organizers. “This is a great opportunity to come and see this new trail.”

Some of the species of plants include: Nootka Rose, Mountain Ash, Ocean Spray, Sword Fern and Red-flowering Currant.

There are a wide variety of native species that will add colour and diversity year-round to the trailside.

Volunteers will meet at 10 a.m. just west of the Willow Creek Bridge off of Jubilee Parkway.

Organizers ask volunteers to prepare for all types of weather.

Gloves will be provided, but please bring a good digging shovel (large). All members of the community are welcome.
