Last weekend the 14th Pathfinders participated in a public tree planting event with the Invasive Species Council of Metro Vancouver, and City of Burnaby in Central Park.
Two large trucks full of trees, shrubs and ferns native the area were planted by a team of volunteers.
Plant species included: huckleberry, cedar, oregon grape, indian plum, spruce, sword fern, salmon berry, thimble berry, and douglas fir.
The group had a great time affectionately naming their trees and shrubs things like “Nock” and “Huck” before planting them in the park.
Luckily, the morning event, from 9am til noon, had great planting weather — cool and crisp, but the rain held off until the end. Afterwards the volunteers were rewarded with some warming hot chocolate.
