English ivy also changes the natural succession patterns in the park. Over time, ivy can kill an entire forest, leaving a dense blanket of ivy with only occasional shrubs or trees. To combat this effect, volunteers remove and control the spread of ivy during monthly sessions. New volunteers are always welcome! http://pacificspiritparksociety.org/ivy-pulling/
The new BC Provincial Alien Invaders Challenge is designed to introduce Girl Guides to the concept of invasive species, educate them about invasive species in their own community, and promote actions that girls can take. Looks like you got off to a great start!
