Attack of the invasive Phragmites? Volunteers wanted!

Monday Aug 24th at 10am-11:30am at the canal by Olympic Drive in Dundas.

We are looking for a couple of volunteers to help us harvest some Invasive Phragmites.  (that tall, tall grass that is taking over that area)
We plan on using this as filler for a number of bee boxes so that our native bees can find homes for their eggs over the winter.  
We'll supply the bags, please bring pruners if you have some.  
MEETING SPOT-Air Force Club (128 King St E, Dundas).  We'll walk over to the site.
Questions? And to register, contact Juby atjlee@environmenthamilton.org

Bringing race relations to the front pages: Black Brown Red Lives Matter working group


Working Groups can make a difference: Black Brown Red Lives Matter has started a public discussion with the intent of holding Hamilton Police accountable for practices of carding racialized people in the city. Front page news in the two big media outlets.


Staying silent is not an option: join with others to make a difference. OPIRG Working Groups can make change happen.
