Invasive Species Volunteer Day – February 14th

The District of North Vancouver has been working on the control of the European Fire Ant.  This invasive ant appears to be spreading rapidly around the lower mainland and has proven to be extremely resilient to almost all efforts to eradicate it.  We are pulling together a volunteer based project that will attempt a large scale treatment of ant infested soil at Inter River Park in North Vancouver.  The District of North Vancouver are seeking volunteers for the half day, Friday February 14 from 8:00 until noon,  to help us dig out the nests which are highly compacted during the cold weather, bag up the soil, load the soil into bins where it will be put in the deep freeze to euthanize the ant colonies.

If there is any interest please contact Erika, as she is coordinating the numbers: nassichuke@dnv.org
