    Photo opportunity: Langara Golf Course to improve ‘urban golf
    experience’ by planting more than 400 trees

    Media are invited to join Vancouver Park Board staff and Environmental
    Studies students from Langara College for the planting of more than
    400 native trees and plants at Langara Golf Course.

    What: Photo opportunity
    When: Friday, November 23, 2012 at 10:30 – 11 a.m.
    Where: Langara Golf Course, 6706 Alberta Street (about 100 metres from
    the clubhouse)

    The initiative at the 48.5-hectare (120-acre) Langara Golf Course
    supports the City of Vancouver’s Greenest City Action Team’s target to
    plant 150,000 trees by 2020, as well as the Park Board’s commitment to
    healthy ecosystems.

    Part of the planting area will be naturalized, requiring minimal
    maintenance and providing wildlife habitat, while two ponds give
    sanctuary to more than 100 species of birds and waterfowl.

    The planting also serves to enhance the golf course’s status as a
    certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary.
