About this site

This project is a phased removal of invasive English hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna) and replacement replanting with native conifers and deciduous trees and a mix of native shrubs species along a wetland edge that feeds into the Catstream, an important urban watercourse in the Harewood Neighborhood. Much of this work is being coordinated with volunteer and participant help from students and faculty from Nanaimo and District Secondary School (NDSS) and the Parks Canada Club at Vancouver Island University.

About City of Nanaimo

The City of Nanaimo is a community of 100,000 residents on the east coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The City has over 1000 Ha of parkland. 70% of it being natural area. The spread of invasive species and the fragmentation of habitat over the years has negatively impacted these spaces. To address this, the City is working with Snuneymuxw First Nation and a variety of community organizations on several environmental restoration projects to increase the ecological diversity of our parks and natural areas.
