Reforestation and watershed restoration were the focus of Earth Day activities at SFU's Burnaby campus Friday, April 20, two days ahead of the globally celebrated event. About 250 people showed up at UniverCity Town Square to insert plant plugs into a seven-metre salmon eco-sculpture in exchange for a donation to the B.C. Rivershed Society's Brunette Rivershed demonstration project. Meanwhile, about a dozen people planted 30-50 native tree seedlings and hundreds of other native plants in a grove near the east entrance of the Applied Sciences building, replacing those blown down during a wind storm last December. All of the young plants were grown from seeds collected on Burnaby Mountain and propagated by a local grower dedicated to native habitats.
