Come help us eradicate knotweed from the Village of Alma! Knotweed is a highly invasive plant species that threatens both human infrastructure, and the ecology of the beautiful Fundy region.
We'll be starting by introducing volunteers to the knotweed plant - how to identify it, why it's a concerning invasive species, and best management practices for controlling it. We'll be showing everyone around some of the sites that Guardian Ecology is working on, and giving participants the opportunity to help eradicate some knotweed!
Meet at 10 am at the Alma Village Office parking lot. The event will include walking and physical activity, and some of the sites do have moderate slopes. Please dress for the weather as this event will take place outside.
Enjoy beautiful views of the Bay of Fundy while helping to protect the nature that makes it such a wonderful place! Bonus - the event is walking distance to the world-class Fundy National Park!
