Cougar Creek Invasive Species Removal
Jun 02, 2018, 09:45 AM - 12:45 PM
The City of Delta, Lower Mainland Green Team, and Cougar Creek Streamkeepers are working together to provide a great opportunity to observe, explore, and protect Cougar Creek, Delta’s most productive salmon stream.
At 9:45am, The Lower Mainland Green Team will kick things off by hosting an invasive species removal event, where participants will help protect a stand of young trees from being taken over by Himalayan Blackberry. Snacks, tools and gloves will be provided.
Register here with the Lower Mainland Green Team to ensure there are enough supplies.
At 11am, the Cougar Creek Streamkeepers will provide a 2-hour guided tour into Cougar Creek Canyon. You will be able to walk through the lush forest and look into the stream pools and likely spot young coho salmon and cutthroat trout.
For both events, sturdy footwear is required. Long pants and long-sleeved shirts are recommended for the invasive plant pull because of the blackberry. Having mosquito repellant is also highly recommended for both events.
Time: 9:45am (invasive plant pull); 11:00am (canyon hike) Location:
Westview Drive cul-de-sac, south of 72nd
Avenue, where the creek flows under the street.
