Community project focuses on native plants, birds

Event Sunday highlights White Rock's native plant demonstration garden.

Friends of Semiahmoo Bay Society will host a community volunteer garden project this Sunday at White Rock’s waterfront native plant demonstration garden.

The 1-4 p.m. event will include a short tour of the garden – located on the west side of the White Rock Museum (14970 Marine Dr.) – to learn about native plants and their uses, the opportunity to plant a seed and a guided bird-watching walk.

The native plant demonstration garden originated in 2003, inspired by an appreciation for the beauty of native plants and for how native plants provide food and protection for birds, pollinators and people.

The garden was overhauled in the fall of 2008, plant identification signs were installed in 2012 and volunteers continue to remove invasive weeds and replace missing plants and broken signs.

Prior to the event, an additional 100 plants will be added.
