A big thank you to all the hard-working volunteers who showed up to plant despite the rain on Oct. 19 at Cates Hill Neighbourhood Park. In just two hours, we planted 20 large trees and more than 100 shrubs! Since then, work has been ongoing: we’ve planted grasses to stabilize the slope, removed invasive species and added a thick layer of mulch. We’d also like to say thank you to BC Hydro and Tree Canada for providing the grant funding that made this habitat creation and rehabilitation project possible and to Mark Edmonds for his tireless volunteer work. The goal of this project was not just to attract birds, bees and wildlife but to create a more inviting space for the community as well. Cates Hill Neighbourhood Park has undergone a stunning transformation, come by and have a look!
