Bogfest 6

Description: Credit Valley Conservation, the Creditview Wetland Stewardship committee and the City of Mississauga recently hosted BogFest at Willowvale Gardens. The annual BogFest provided a great opportunity for the community to learn about the 12,000-year-old Creditview Wetland. Volunteers came together to assist in stewardship activities, including cleaning up around the observation deck and fences, removing bindweed, planting trees and adding mulch. Along with work there were many fun activities: building bird houses and feeders, sketching and painting, Ecotours, bird watching, face painting and a number of contests. Fallingbrook Middle School Glee Club and Rock Band entertained attendees then participants and volunteers enjoyed a BBQ lunch! For more information, visit www.creditviewwetland.org.
