Super fun cleanup and party!

What fun we had at our annual spring cleanup and old city celebration in Pawson Park! Thanks to the City of Nanaimo for the grant and for providing vests and pickers for the cleanup and for taking the garbage away. Thanks to White Rabbit Coffee for the treats after the cleanup and thanks to the Nanaimo Fiddle Society for some terrific toe-tapping music played by fiddlers of all ages!

Come and help restore the Cat Stream

Join us on Saturday, October 29 from 10 am to 3 pm. This is phase 1 of a Pine Street Restoration project to remove invasive species. In November native trees and shrubs will be planted. Meet at the corner of Pine and Albion Streets.

Why? Riparian areas surrounding streams provide critical ecosystem functions important in maintaining the balance and water quality of streams and rivers. They provide shade, filter sediment and prevent erosion, as well as provide habitat for animals big and small.

RSVP to or contact The Nanaimo Area Land Trust if you have any questions.
