June 3, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
OCAYS Wrap up for the 2016-2017 Season
Calling all youth 13-18!
Oakvillegreen Conservation Association Youth Stewards’ (OCAYS) first ever restoration planting and celebration event will be held at Shell Park on June 3rd.
The OCAYS have been very busy this year getting inspired and doing amazing conservation work! The OCAYS learned about pollinator conservation, set up a salamander monitoring study, surveyed for invasive insects, identified trees in the winter, shadowed arborists in the field, banded birds, and now they are getting ready to help restore native biodiversity and plant trees at Shell Park. It’s not too late to join in the fun and earn your volunteer hours doing it!
Youth must REGISTER for this event HERE.
The schedule for this day includes:
11 am sharp! – Arrival and sign in
11 am – 12:45pm Tree planting, invasive species removal and scavenger hunt
12:45pm – Lunch will be provided
1:15pm – 2pm “Community Engagement and Youth Needs” workshop provided by the Town of Oakville
