“A demonstration of what you can do with your lawn” — View installation of educational xeriscape

  | May 6, 2011  |  This documentary highlights a community-driven landscape restoration project at Bishop Wild Bird Sanctuary on Kalamalka Lake (Coldstream, B.C.). The project resulted in the creation of an educational xeriscape demonstration garden and new walking trails. The project involved removal of over 4,000 square feet of turf grass, import of over 100 metric tonnes of gravel, shale and sand, installation of over 1200 individual plants and over 50 native species, and hundreds of volunteer hours by over 80 people from numerous community organizations. Public is invited to come and visit the garden starting Father’s Day (June 19, 2011). See bishopwildbirdsanctuary.org for more information.
