The Lower Mainland Green Team planted native plants at Aldergrove Regional Park on Oct. 19.

Monica of Balance Ecological and Roy of Metro Vancouver Parks hosted the event.

The nine volunteers who contributed 29 hours were Damien, Dorian, Diana, Joshua, Matt, Mike, Dianne, Ryan and Sam. Of the nine volunteers two had never planted native plants before and one had never been to Aldergrove Regional Park before.

About 550 native plants were planted, which included hardhack, hawthorne, spreading rush, small flowering bullrush, soft stemmed bullrush, tall mannagrass, dense sedge, mertens sedge, and Pacific willow.

Volunteers stuck around past the planned end time of 1 p.m. to finish the planting work, which created habitat for the endangered species such as the Oregon spotted frog.

Funds were raised for restoring this site for the Oregon spotted frog by children from the Earthrangers organization.
