Shrub planting work party behind Piercy Creek Estates located between Cumberland Road and 20th Street this coming Saturday, April 13 starting at 10am: This is a joint project between Rotary Club of Strathcona Sunrise, the City of Courtenay and Millard-Piercy Watershed Stewards. Rotary is funding the plant purchase (although the City may supplement this with additional plants) and all three groups are expected to help with planting. The City is also supplying mulch to put around plants after they are installed to suppress weed growth and help with moisture retention during the dry months. Bring work gloves, good boots for digging, a shovel and wheelbarrow if you are able. Park along 20th Street near the new phase of Piercy Creek Estates, look for a pathway heading north then over a foot bridge. Turn left at the concrete fish. The planting area will be a short way along. Your help with this important project to enhance the plant density in riparian zone of this section of Piercy Creek would be appreciated. Come even if you can stay for only an hour or so. Contact MPWS if you have questions.
