H.G. Lawrence, Pine Lake, Alberta
Inventories and Monitoring

Join us Sept-timber 15 fir a fun afternoon of tree surveying! In 2014 volunteers put in a treemendous amount of effort to plant over 2,500 native shrubs and trees on the property to spruce up wildlife corridors. We need your help to conduct a survey of the vegetation to assess the overall health and success of the plantings. No experience required, it’s as easy as one-two-tree! NCC staff will provide instruction and guidance for volunteers. This is a great opportunity to get outside and learn more about NCC and our work.
