Kids rid Sunshine Bay of invasive plant

Redfish School students and volunteers with the Central Kootenay Invasive Species Society will take back the land at Sunshine Bay Park.

Students will remove Scotch broom from Sunshine Bay Park on Friday.

Redfish School students and volunteers with the Central Kootenay Invasive Species Society will take back the land at Sunshine Bay Park today when they remove invasive Scotch broom from this popular site.

The kids will also learn about invasive species, the impacts they have and what can be done to keep such invaders from disturbing the ecology.

“It’s heartening to see students engaged in maintaining our park’s ecology and learning about invasive species,” says Area E director Ramona Faust.

The event is part of the Youth Pulling Together program which encourages youth to become local stewards by teaching them about invasive species.
