Harewood Plains Environmentally Sensitive Areas Project
Invasives along the BCTC Hydro Right of Way in the Harewood Plains area controlled/removed. Photo-point monitoring sites have been established. A Garry oak information sign was designed and placed in City of Nanaimo Parks to raise public awareness of Garry oak ecosystems. Other initiatives include broom removal with student volunteers and a restoration plan for habitat of the Endangered Lotus pinnatus (bog bird’s foot trefoil). Partners include Environment Canada, the Ministry of Environment, the City of Nanaimo, the British Columbia Transmission Authority, the Island Timberlands and Friends of Harewood Plains.
