Community Spirit at Work in Our Parks

Mar 31, 2015 |

It's awesome when people get together to do good things for their community and last week was a great example of that. City staff and students from Dover Bay Secondary School's Eco Club came together to plant native species at one of Nanaimo's newest parks, Camas Park.

On March 23 and March 27, the crew planted a mixture of 100 Garry Oak trees, 16 Douglas-fir trees and 200 Camas bulbs to enhance the park's natural setting. WPC Building Services donated 60 of the Garry Oaks that were planted.

Garry Oak ecosystems, once prevalent on Vancouver Island, are among the most endangered in Canada. The City is working to enhance and re-establish Garry Oak ecosystems. 

The City recently opened Camas Park located on Westwood Road near the Parkway Trail. This small neighbourhood park features a Garry Oak ecosystem with a trail winding through it.

    Residents and community groups can fabricate a superior future and receive the rewards that green spaces bring to the table regarding wellbeing, joy and group soul. Groups are various to improve things, yet regardless they require the correct counsel and answers for making and dealing with their space, coursework writing uk and for working together with local businesses.
