- Created: Monday, 14 May 2012 14:07
Two seperate days this month, we were fortunate enough to have a large group of students from Landsdown Middle School come help us restory the Garry Oak meadows at the Matson Conservation Area. They were an enthusiastic group lead by their teacher Mme.Couture and were keen to not only pull invasive species but to learn about the creatures and various plant life that exists in a Garry Oak Meadow. It is an important time of year to get rid of the ivy and these students were able to make a big difference. It is important to never undersestimate the power of youth, their energy and tenacity when it came to pulling ivy and blackberry was great to see. Lansdowne Middle School also has a native plant garden on their property and are a great example and leader in terms of a school taking charge and helping to shape ecosystems at their school and abroad.
