Bio
Looking for a constructive way to help the environment?

We’re a group of people from all over the Lower Mainland who get together once a month (sometimes more) to help an environmental group, non-profit organization, charity or city tackle an environmental issue that needs co-operation and teamwork to get done. Gloves and tools will be supplied as well as refreshments! If you care about the environment, this is the group for you! Some activities will include:

• Pulling invasive plants that are overtaking our native flora
• Planting of native plants/trees
• Restoring areas along a stream, river, marsh or shoreline
• Beach/River/lake clean up
• Harvesting organic fruits/veggies
• Trail building/maintenance
• Restoration of wildlife sites

What will you get out of it? Here are a few things we think you’ll get. You’ll..

• Meet like-minded people
• Feel good getting your hands dirty and being active in something you believe in
• Educate yourself about natural spaces and the environmental problems they face
• Learn first-hand about work being done in the lower mainland by different environmental groups
• Get the experience of a variety of stewardship activities
• Restore a natural space from a damaged state
• Be trained in stewardship practices
• Explore a nature space you may have never been to before
• Realise the benefits of working together with others
• Learn about environmental activities other group members are involved in
• Get physical exercise
• Have fun!

Hi Lyda! Your group looks really great. Are you a member of our Canada's Children and Nature group on this forum? I'd let people know about the Green Team there. You might also want to post it on our web site map, www.childrenandnature.org/movements. And feel free to post events in our Events section of the forum. I'll try to think of some other ideas for you to help you get the word out.

Hi Lyda! Welcome to C&NN Connect. I'm glad you found us and shared your terrific energy and resources. I hope you continue to make yourself at home on the forum -- in blogs, discussions and groups. You might enjoy our Natural Service Network or our Canada's Children & Nature group, for starters. I hope you'll keep sharing your ideas and that we see you again soon.
