VIDEO: Earthwise plants on Earth Day

Group of volunteers does its part to help vulnerable species in the area’s waterways

Volunteers built up the native plant population Saturday morning at the Earthwise Agassiz farm as part of a habitat restoration project.

The Earth Day participants were guided by Mike Pearson, local wildlife biologist, who tracks vulnerable species in area waterways-including the Miami River where Saturday’s planting took place.

The event was in partnership with the Fraser Valley Conservancy.
