“Our class had a great day working hard and learning about invasive plants at Routley Park,” said Keara Curtis, teacher at the school. “They were thrilled to look back on their progress and see the significant difference they made in the park.”

In total, 31 volunteers contributed 62 hours to removing invasive Himalayan and Evergreen blackberry from the park.

The Green Team will be back at Routley Park with students from Brookswood Secondary on Wednesday morning.
