Invasive Shrub Removal Volunteer Events will be EVERY SATURDAY starting October 15th and ending November 19th, 2016, 9am to 1pm.

Meet at the Nature Interpretive Centre on the north side of Cootes Paradise, RBG Arboretum 16 Old Guelph Road, Hamilton ON.

Royal Botanical Gardens’ Nature Sanctuaries protect over 900 hectares of woodlands and wetlands. They are an important stopover for migratory birds and a biodiversity hotspot. The health and sustainability of our Nature Sanctuaries is being threatened by non-native, invasive species. You can help RBG’s Natural Lands staff preserve biodiversity by participating in our invasive species removal volunteer events. Volunteers will protect our important interior forest ecosystems by extracting and destroying non-native invasive shrubs.

Remember - Dress for the weather and be prepared to get dirty. Gloves and equipment will be provided. Please wear closed toed shoes, and bring a portable lunch and water bottle. We will provide water and snacks for participants. We look forward to seeing you there!
