Volunteers needed for the Campbell River Estuary

Tired of looking at your own backyard, why not start by helping to plant the Campbell River Estuary

Getting ready to welcome Spring?

Tired of looking at your own backyard, why not start by helping to plant the Campbell River Estuary.

Once the site of the Ocean Blue Cedar Shake Mill, this two-acre (0.8-hectare) waterfront property is another gem in the vision to conserve and restore the estuary to its natural state. Nature Conservancy of Canada, the City of Campbell River and the Tula Foundation purchased this piece of property in the fall of 2007. Join Greenways Land Trust and the Nature Conservancy of Canada on April 9 to plant this area with native marsh plants.

This planting is one of many steps needed to fulfill the restoration plans for the Ocean Blue Property. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. volunteers will meet at the Ocean Blue Property: travelling north on Highway 19, cross the Campbell River bridge and turn right on the dirt road immediately following Robinson Road.  Be prepared for all types of weather, tools and light refreshments will be provided.    Questions? Call Greenways at 287-3785 or e-mail greenways@greenwaystrust.ca
