    Adopt-a-Patch at Five Points Forest

    Join us at Five Points Forest on April 23th, 1-4pm, for an Adopt-a-Patch workshop.

    The Adopt-a-Patch program aims to engage property stewards in ecological restoration by removing invasive species from their "patch" annually to protect surrounding habitat. This will lead to planting of the cleared areas with native species once the invasive ones have been kicked out! More info on the Adopt-a-Patch program here.

    If you're new to Adopt-a-Patch, you will choose your 10m x 10m patch and receive a patch toolkit containing a bucket, trowel, garbage bags, work gloves, and garlic mustard information sheet. We will provide training in garlic mustard identification and removal, and you will have the opportunity to work on your patch.

    If you already have a patch, this is an opportunity to come out and work on it again. You're welcome to attend the training portion if you'd like a refresher. Don't forget to bring your patch kit!

    Don't want to commit to a patch? That's fine too! Come out for the day and pull Garlic Mustard between the patches.

    This is an outdoor event and will take place rain or shine. Please come dressed for the weather and bring water and snacks.

    What is Garlic Mustard?

    Garlic Mustard was introduced to North America by European settlers as an edible and medicinal garden plant in the 1800s. Over time it gradually escaped from people's gardens into the wild, and in the last 30 years its populations have exploded throughout North America. It has become a serious invader of forests and other natural spaces. Each plant can produce thousands of tiny seeds that can wait in the soil for 5 years or more before they germinate. Garlic Mustard has no natural enemies in North America, but it aggressively crowds out native plants and can dominate the forest understory within 5 years of the first seed being introduced.

    Join us on April 29th from 10am until noon to pull invasive Garlic Mustard plants and help to protect and conserve native plants and wildlife at Hawk Cliff Woods.

    All time will count towards your required volunteer hours.

     

    What is ChangeTheWorld?

    CTW2017_Stamp.jpgChangeTheWorld Ontario Youth Volunteer Challenge takes place between April 23 and June 3, 2017. This is a provincial initiative funded by the Ontario government in partnership with Ontario Volunteer Centre Network with the goal of engaging youth to volunteer in their communities.

    The ChangeTheWorld – Ontario Youth Volunteer Challenge is a call to action for youth aged 14 to 18 years to volunteer through a wide variety of exciting community initiatives. Now in its 10th year, ChangeTheWorld is an opportunity for youth to be part of a provincial campaign and to be a force for good in their local community.
