Readers write - REMINDER – LAST ONE - I PROMISE!!!

Just a reminder that the SPrKL wetland clean-up, next to the RDNO office (map attached), takes place this Friday and Saturday.

If you missed out on the Adopt-a-Stream clean-up and want to be involved in a community event come out and join us for as long as you like. We will be providing healthy snacks to all volunteers including apple juice (home-made), fruit bars and even pizza (at the end of each day).

Friday, weeding starts at 1:00 pm and goes until early evening. Saturday, planting starts at 10:30 am and goes until late afternoon. If possible, bring gloves and clippers for weeding and bring shovels, shears and buckets for planting. Extra supplies will be on-site.

Big thanks go to Paul and Carrie for helping out with this project. Paul generously provided background information, Section 9 Review and met with regulators on-site. Carrie was invaluable in providing directions on plant type, placement and product sourcing.

The event is being filmed as part of a documentary that will eventually be put on the spkl website. For more info on the project go to and check out ‘upcoming projects’.

It would be great to see you there!
