Residents of the Howe Sound Basin are being invited to lend a hand Sunday, May 6 in a one-day creek habitat restoration project at 36-Mile Creek.
The waterway is a tributary of the Squamish River and the project is being spearheaded by the Steelhead Society of British Columbias Habitat Restoration Corporation.
The day will consist of planting work, eco-tours and a free lunch.
Steelhead Society biologists will conduct tours to illustrate how the indigenous varieties of plants that volunteers will be planting from salmon berries to cedar trees will all serve to regenerate and enrich the area.
This project has brought together a group of diverse partners including the Squamish Nation, Interfor, Squamish Stream Keepers Association and the Whistler Fly-Fishing Guides Association.
Anyone interested in pitching in should meet at the parking lot in front of Starbucks at 1200 Hunter Place in Squamish at 9 a.m. Sunday morning. Transportation to the site will be provided from here.
