The Lower Mainland Green Team joined forces with the North Delta Green Team (also known as the Cougar Creek Streamkeepers) for an invasive plant removal at the Delta Nature Reserve.

The two dozen volunteers also removed garbage they found and planted native plants. Organizer Lyda Salatian said that a majority of participants at the event were new Canadians.
