The kids – members of NatureKids Nicomekl – along with parents, group leaders Anthea Farr and Lynn Pollard, and representatives of A Rocha, Little Campbell Watershed Society and Friends of Semiahmoo Bay Society, spent Saturday (March 24) planting 250 native plants and shrubs.
They weathered the cold and rain to plant Sitka alder, grand fir, swamp currant, red elderberry, Cooley’s hedge nettle, fringecup, alumroot and wapato, as well as sundry plants to attract pollinators.
According to NatureKids BC, NatureKids Nicomekl is a club for families in communities near Surrey and Langley. Outdoor ‘Explorer Days’ are organized monthly as part of efforts to encourage children to “get outdoors to explore, play, learn about and take action for nature.”
