Volunteers Wanted: Salmon River Estuary Conservation Area

Karen Barry

Grab your shovel and gloves and help restore riparian and wetland habitats at the Salmon River Estuary Conservation Area near Sayward on Vancouver Island. The Nature Trust of BC is looking for volunteers to help replant native shrubs and trees on land that was once home to invasive Scotch Broom. Now that it’s been removed, it’s time to re-plant and help restore this important wetland and riparian habitat purchased in 2015 by the Nature Trust of BC, with funding support from the FWCP. Learn more.

Anyone interested in volunteering is welcome October 12-14, 2016. Organizers will be there from 9 am to 1 pm on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and invite you to join them anytime. Bring your lunch, rain gear, gloves, and a shovel (optional).

The property is located south of the Village of Sayward, on the west side of the Salmon River, on Sayward Road, east of Frenchman Road, between the Salmon River and Hammond Creek bridges.

For more information, contact Karen Barry 250-713-3193 or karen.barry@gov.bc.ca.

Restoring these lands helps address impacts from BC Hydro dams in the Campbell River watershed.
