Hello Community Members!
The Dillon Creek Wetland Restoration Project, a partnership project between Friends of Cortes Island Society (FOCI) and Linnaea Farm Society (LFS) to benefit the lakes and wetland wildlife, has been constructed!
In September we planted Indigenous potted plants from a nursery, and now it is time to continue revegetation work by planting live stake cuttings of local Indigenous plants.
Revegetation work bee:
Saturday February 12th, 10am -2pm
Tools to bring (if you have them): gloves, loppers, secateurs, rubber mallet.
Please join us and be part of restoration in action!
The soil will be rough and loose, and muddy, so please wear appropriate footwear and watch out for uneven ground. Also please come prepared for the weather, rain or shine, and bring water and food that you’ll need for the day.
Please park in the main Linnaea parking lot and walk into the First Field site via the north driveway past the machine shop.
Hand sanitizer and a first aid kit will be on site! This event is outside and we will be socially distancing. Please do not attend this event if you are feeling any COVID symptoms (sore throat, fever, headache, chills, difficulty breathing, etc).
If you'd like to join us, please be in touch with Miranda Cross by email salixwetlandsgmail.com or call at 250-850-9020 for details.
This project would not be possible without the generous financial and in-kind support of local individuals, organizations, and the Government of Canada.
