NCC’s Second Annual Toki Thistle Pull

July 5, 2008 - 4:00pm

Nature Conservancy of Canada

What: Volunteers will join the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) for a day of invasive plant removal at NCC’s Toki Nature Reserve property near Cochrane. Volunteers will pull weeds including Canada Thistle in order to protect the native plant diversity of this ecologically significant area. In addition to enhancing its habitat, volunteers will enjoy a guided tour of this scenic property.

When: Saturday July 5th 2008, 10:00 a.m.

Why: This property was conserved by NCC in partnership with Tokijarhpabi Holdings Ltd in 2002, who felt that this land is a valuable historical, environmental, and educational resource important to protect and conserve for future generations. It supports a wide variety of species including coyote, grey wolf, red fox, black bear, grizzly bear, cougar, Canada lynx, and bobcat. Unfortunately, the property’s native plants currently face invasive plant species such as Canada Thistle, and we need the help of volunteers to remove this threat to native biodiversity.

Where: NCC's Toki property in Jumpingpound Creek, near Cochrane
