Brampton set to show some love to its flora and fauna

May 2, 2018 by  

Brampton, which is known to many by its nickname “the flower city” will soon be doing a good turn for both its wildflowers and the insects and other creatures that pollinate them. The public’s help is being sought for this annual event.

Sierra Club Brampton will be undertaking its yearly wildflower planting and maintenance of its community pollinator plot. A variety of tasks will need to be done, and volunteers will be able to assist in the work while they learn more about native plants and their importance to the ecosystem.

The morning will be taking place in the Aboriginal Medicine Wheel Garden, which can be found in the community’s Heart Lake Conservation Area. The goal is to provide habitat and food sources for bees, butterflies and other pollinators, and all help will be appreciated. The event will be held rain or shine.

Those who would like to get involved are asked to register ahead of time, and arrive wearing closed-toed shoes, a long-sleeved shirt and long pants. Banner printing can be used to create eye-catching signage that can help to make the public aware of when and where a project like this will be taking place in their community.

This day of grassroots environmental effort has been planned for June 2. It will begin at 9:00 am, and more information can be sourced from the planner’s website.
