Town Trail Stewards Remove Invasive Yellow Floating Heart in the SNAP Neighbourhood

On Tuesday, a group of 14 volunteers put on their waders and got to work removing yellow floating heart from the pond at Dominion Gardens Park. This is the first of three invasive species workdays the Town and CVC are planning in partnership with POWER and Halton Peel Woodlands and Wildlife Stewardship.

The Town is expanding its Trail Stewards volunteer opportunities to work alongside Credit Valley Conservation in the SNAP neighbourhood. Two-hour-long workdays start with an educational session and then the group hits the Hungry Hollow trails to pull invasive plants.

The Town’s Trail Steward positions are open for applications through their volunteer webpage. Trail Stewards are avid hikers that enjoy walking or learning about the Halton Hills trail network. Their main role is to report back on any concerns they come across, but this year the Town is expanding the opportunity and organizing several SNAP workdays. This volunteer opportunity can be done individually or with family to allow for some quality time in nature. The Trail Steward positions are for volunteers 14 years of age or older, who are able to independently hike the trails. Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult.

Upcoming invasive species workdays will be on August 18 and 26.
