Janice Jarvis, a management specialist with Metro Vancouver, said the event was one of 10 being held Saturday throughout Metro Vancouver’s parks.

She estimated 70 people volunteered at the Aldergrove event, including about 20 Girl Guides. Volunteers at the native vegetation planting at Aldergrove Regional Park also included the “Shah Satnam JI Welfare Force D.S.S. (Dera Sacha Sauda) Sirsha”, a social welfare and spiritual organization.

The plan for Aldergrove Regional Park is to reclaim a former raspberry field and turn it back into forest.

About 2,000 seedlings such as Douglas fir, white hemlock, cedar and grand fir will be used to achieve the reclamation. A total of about 4,000 plant plugs were available for planting.
