About the project

The focus of the project is to remove salal in the Delta Nature Reserve. Salal is an invasive species that harms the bog ecosystem by outgrowing and displacing bog plants. You will learn how to effectively identify salal, and how to use gardening tools to remove it. You will be working with community volunteers to help restore the bog ecosystem, and increase the available habitat for native bog plants, such as Bog Blueberry and Cloudberry.
