Over the years, the Langley Field Naturalists have been involved in many conservation projects. A few of these projects are described below.

Purple Loosestrife:
An introduced invasive weed, Purple Loosestrife was quickly spreading on the Nicomekl floodplain. The Langley Field Naturalists initiated a project to breed and release beetles that feed solely on Purple Loosestrife. After a few years, there was a noticeable decline in the Purple Loosestrife, and nibbled leaves indicate there is now an established population of beetles on the floodplain. A success story!

Forslund/Watson Reserve:
The Langley Field Naturalists manage an 80 acre nature reserve in south Langley. Activities there include planting trees and shrubs to increase plant and wildlife diversity, removing invasive weeds, putting up nest boxes, and maintaining old field habitat for raptors.

Brydon Lagoon:
The Langley Field Naturalists helped establish Brydon Lagoon as a nature park. Our activities there include helping to maintain the trail, posting signs, planting shrubs, putting up nest boxes, checking water quality, and anchoring floating logs for waterfowl.

Adopt a Trail:
The Langley Field Naturalists help to maintain and remove litter from two trails, the Irene Pearce trail in Langley's Municipal Natural Park and the Bakerview trail in Walnut Grove.
