Forest Cleanup with the Aylmer 1st scouts!

Date : September 16th
Heure : 13h à 16h
Lieu : 1200 chemin Antoine-Boucher

With the brave scouts of the Aylmer 1st Troop, come lend a hand to our annual cleaning chore! This year, the cleanup will be one of weeding an invasive plant present in significant amount in the forest, commonly known as buckthorn. Weeding and cutting will be on the menu to try to limit the impact of this exotic plant which causes a lot of damage to the biodiversity. This is an excellent opportunity to contribute concretely to the protection of the Boucher forest! Necessary tools will be provided and a snack will be served to the participants.
