On May 11th, Project Watershed is looking for volunteers who identify as seniors or elders to help Grade 2 students from Arden Elementary plant native species around the Airpark and learn about the ecology and history of the area. On May 10th, volunteers are also needed to plant salt marsh and assist in gathering dune grass for students to plant the next day. The salt marsh planting and dune grass gathering will be done near the Royston Wrecks. “We have some salt marsh plants left over from our last plant near the Royston Wrecks and know that the area has healthy populations of dune grass. We saw this as an opportunity to do two things at once.”stated Dan Bowen, Project Watershed Technical Director. The gathering and planting on the 10th of May will start at 9:30am and go until we are finished, which will likely be around noon. All are welcome to join us for this spring time estuary gardening. The activities on the 11th at the Airpark will start at 9:30am and go til 1:30pm with a break for recess and lunch. We have four activities planned: Planting, Naturalist Walk, First Nation Fish Trap Building and Exploring, and Story Time. Volunteers are asked to meet at 9:00am on the grass in front of the Mansfield Drive parking lot and are reminded to dress for the weather (hat, sunscreen or rain jacket), wear rain boots, and to bring a water bottle.
