Fun Times at Summer Camp! photo

Summer day camp participants at Maple Grove Park and Killarney Park learned all about invasive species this summer! They learned about some of the common, and not so common, plant and animals species that invade our homes, gardens, parks and outdoor spaces. The highlight was seeing a real preserved American bullfrog adult and tadpole - all in the name of science!

The kids wetn on a nature scavenger hunt, searching for clues in nature. They spotted a few invasive species lurking in the parks. Finally, they got to create their own most "unwanted invasive species". What is the scariest, most demaing invasive species you can image? We really hope we don't find any of those creations in Vancouver anytime soon.

Thanks for helping us to spread the message about invasive species and we hope to see you in summer 2021!
