Swallow-Wort, commonly known as Dog Strangling Vine (DSV), has been spreading rapidly across the City of Ottawa and has wreaked havoc in many of our green spaces, pushing out much of our native flora.

You are invited to attend a DSV Removal Workshop on April 27, 2023, led by the Alta Vista Community Association (AVCA). The session will run from 6:30p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

The AVCA is also looking for volunteers who are interested in spending a few hours outdoors either on a regular basis (or even just once!) No special skills or knowledge are required, and team leaders will show you everything that needs to be done! Management practices set out by the Ontario Invasive Plant Council will be followed. No pesticides or power tools will be used. If you’d like to join, or want more information, you can send an email to avcadsv@gmail.com.
