Bayview Restoration Project

Help Us Plant

The Bayview Restoration Project has started! Come out and learn about the habitat restoration project to restore native vegetation to the Upper and Lower Bayview slopes. The planting of the Bayview started on Wednesday, November 19. Planting will take place during the hours of 9-11 a.m. Planting will be in pre-dug holes so it will not be too difficult. These plantings are  spearheaded by NBC with cooperation and support from all the UNB agencies.
