The rare Charitable Research Reserve and WWF Partner to Stop the Spread of Invasive Plants
The rare Charitable Research Reserve and World Wildlife Fund Canada have partnered to make more room for biodiversity in the Waterloo-Wellington region by engaging residents in hands-on conservation efforts.
Removing non-native plants such as Periwinkle, Daylily, Garlic Mustard and Buckthorn improves habitat by creating space for the native plants that wildlife depend on. This is great opportunity for “Wildlifers” to connect with nature, bond with community members and become more familiar with the flora of southern Ontario. This is rare’s second collaboration with WWF-Canada, having previously received a WWF Go Wild Community Grant in the spring. Both rare and WWF-Canada are committed to protecting the future of nature, within Waterloo Region/Wellington and across Canada, by providing opportunities for Canadians of different backgrounds to take action in their communities and to meet and learn from each other as land stewards. Together we can make protecting wildlife a way of life.

When: Thursday, September 6
