Our Process

Find out more about the step-by-step process we use for removing invasive English Ivy.

Invasive Removal & Planting

On the west side of the Red Alder Trail, adjacent to Kinross Creek Co-op, you will find Doug’s Garden.

Educational Outreach

Free the Fern partners with the Invasive Species Council of Metro Vancouver to provide training on invasive removal and native planting.

Art for Plants Fundraiser

In March 2021, Free the Fern launched an Art for Plants Fundraiser. We hope to fund the purchase of native plants for the Champlain Heights Trail.

This is just one small tree.
But, it is a tree that has been freed from English Ivy and now has a chance to grow into one big tree.
Remember, it all starts with just one small tree.
