Earth Day at Everett Crowley Park

April 21, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

VMS members are gathering again for this year’s Earth Day at Everett Crowley
Park, providing public mycology education and inoculating pollinator-friendly
native shrubs and nurse logs with fungi.

This revitalized landfill site has taken on a new life as a rewilded natural green
space for wildlife and people, and is Vancouver’s largest off-leash dog park.
Partnered with the Vancouver Park Park Board, Wildcoast Ecological Society
will be leading a salmon berry planting along the banks of Kinross Creek, and
the Environmental Youth Alliance will be giving away native plants. There will
also be an interpretive walk of the park, and Vancouver Public Library will be
on hand hosting its many books on natural history.

We are looking for extra VMS volunteers to help with our booth and to assist
families in inoculating native shrub plantings with mycorrhizal spores and nurse
logs with myceliated wooden dowels.
