We still have some mulch left to spread mulch on the new plantings of native trees and shrubs in the public park at the corner of King and John Street. If you are available to help out, please let us know by sending an email or using the form below.
Volunteers mulched on Oct. 23 after weeding in mid-August and mid-September to remove invasive weeds and aggressive grasses in order to give the new plantings a chance to get established.
In October 2020, volunteers had planted 450 native plants and shrubs as a riparian planting along One Mile Creek. An assessment this summer by the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority that there was a 90% survival rate for the plantings – better than the 70% target.
