CVC Hosts Invasive Species Removal at Island Lake

Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) invites residents to connect with neighbours and give back to the community at the annual Island Lake Invasive Species Removal event on Saturday, September 8, 2018 from 9 a.m. to noon.

Invasive species are plants that are not native to the area. They out-compete native species and often spread quickly. Removing invasive species is important because they can choke out native plants, introduce disease or crossbreed with native species and impact wildlife.

No experience is necessary and CVC staff will provide all equipment. Students are encouraged to participate to earn their community volunteer hours.

Participants should dress for the weather, and wear long pants and boots if possible. Light refreshments are also available.

Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) is a local conservation authority established by the Ontario government in 1954 to protect, restore and enhance the natural environment of the Credit River Watershed. That watershed is the area of land defined by where all rainfall, snowmelt and runoff drains into lands and waters flowing into the Credit River. CVC creates connections between people and nature, knowledge and action. It inspires a deep appreciation for the role of nature in keeping people connected, healthy and happy. CVC is a member of Conservation Ontario.
