September 1: Invasive Species Busting

This week we’ll be focused on stopping the advance of dog strangling vine (DSV) and Phragmites into the park’s natural areas. We’ll be preventing further invasive spread by removing DSV seed pods and spading phragmite roots.

What to bring: We’ll be working on and off pathways. We recommend long pants, closed toe shoes, sun protection and water. Gardening gloves are useful but not required. Downsview Park will be providing shovels and bags as needed.

Location: We will meet outside the Discovery Centre (back of 70 Canuck Avenue, next to the greenhouses).
