Reg Franklin Park is sporting a new look.
On Friday, Mar. 12, students of the Environmental School’s Fish Ladder Awareness Team planted 150 native plants to build up the riparian area of Morse Creek.
The planting took place with the Alouette River Management Society and the Maple Ridge Adopt-a-Park Program partnered with B.C. Wildlife Federation, who donated native species plants to Reg Franklin Park as part of their Reel Fishing workshop.
Once the planting was complete, students covered the ground with a mulch mixture to retain moisture throughout the dryer summer months.
The event was made possible by the Stewart Family Foundation, the Pacific Salmon Foundation and the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC.
