Let’s Get Pulling Together in Kennedale Ravine
There are a number of invasive weeds that are starting to take over in Kennedale and Hermitage
Ravines. Left alone these plants will destroy native plants and change the ecosystem for ever. Himalayan
Balsam is extremely invasive to moist natural areas and is quickly spreading through the ravine. After
dying back in the fall it leaves the river bank bare, thus increasing erosion in the winter. Himalayan
Balsam has a shallow root system which makes it easy to pull.
Community Weed pulls provides an excellent opportunity for people to get outdoors, learn about invasive
plants and control the spread of these destructive plants.
Ways you can get involved!
1. Join the weed pull on Saturday July 12, 10 am – 2:00 pm Meet at Hermitage Park at the north end
by the entrance to the dog park. (2115 Hermitage Road) Weather permitting. The event will be
rescheduled to Sunday July 13, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm if cancelled due to bad weather on Saturday.
2. Get a few friends, neighbours or colleagues together and plan your own weed pulling event. Call
Don Slobinyk at 780-944-5438 cell 780-910-0276 to make arrangements. Don can provide training to
identify invasive weeds, supply garbage bags, and arrange to pick up the bags when you are done.
3. Spread the word to friends, neighbours and colleagues.
