If you’re looking to work up an eco-friendly sweat, volunteer with Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) at Willow Park Ecology Centre, 463 Guelph Street in Norval. Volunteers are needed for natural area restoration on Saturday June 7, from 9 a.m. to noon.
The event is open to those of all ages and is ideal for students looking to earn community service hours. Activities include trail maintenance and invasive plant removal.
“The winter ice storm caused significant damage to trails at Willow Park,” said Carolyn Martin, park manager at Willow Park Ecology Centre. “Volunteers can improve the natural area for wildlife and visitors alike.”
No experience necessary, training will be provided. Participants are asked to dress for the weather and wear long pants and sturdy shoes.
In addition to a number of gardens and trails, Willow Park Ecology Centre boasts a butterfly garden, wetland and snake habitat.
For more information, contact CVC’s Lindsey Jennings at 905-670-1615 ext. 445 or [email protected].
