Green Team takes on Duprez Ravine

Lower Mainland Green Team works with the City of White Rock for first time

The Lower Mainland Green Team had a successful cleanup at Duprez Ravine July 20, with a few new faces working to remove invasive plants.

LMGT founder and director Lyda Salatian noted that this was the first time the team had worked with the City of White Rock and the White Rock and Surrey Naturalists.

The 25 volunteers came to the ravine from White Rock, Surrey, Coquitlam, Abbotsford, Richmond and Burnaby – with more than half coming to see the site for the first time.

Salatian also noted that a family who had just moved to White Rock from China came to participate in the cleanup.

Wendy Guan, Alexander Luo and Robin Luo’s first course of action was to join a volunteer group conserving a local White Rock park, Salatian said.

“It’s great that they wanted to connect with their community and make a difference to a local park so soon after just having arrived here,” she said.

The crew removed 1,200 pounds of invasive plants, including English ivy, laurel, Himalayan blackberry, policeman’s helmet, periwinkle, lamium and holly.
