Wild Minds 2019 – Day 4

Strathcona and Cottonwood Gardens Environmental Youth Alliance youth garden provide such wonderful nature activities and learning opportunities, which is really what makes for a successful program. The youth have lots to stay engaged with. Today was a mix of learning starting with some native plant identification and some youth doing some plant pressing. Later, we learned more about birds by looking at a number of taxidermy birds lent to us from the UBC Beaty Biodiversity Museum. In the afternoon, we headed over to the youth garden to clear away a patch of invasive non-native plants such as Himalayan blackberry, buttercup, morning glory, and goutweed.
