IVY AND HOLLY REMOVAL
When: EVERY THURSDAY MORNING - 10:00 a.m til 12:00 Noon

Work parties generally happen rain or shine, unless heavy rain or snow on ground. Emails are sent to all volunteers as and when a work party may be cancelled due to inclement weather or other factors.

Where we will work:
We are working on the section of park adjacent to and on the south side of the Seaview Resort and Motel on Cordova Bay Road. Parking is available for volunteers during regular work party times only in the upper parking lot of the motel.Our first section of Park is encircled by trails which helps define the task. As is the norm, we will be removing Ivy, Blackberry, Holly, Daphne, and non-native garden escapees. Once the initial section is complete we will replant as needed with native species. From this first section on we will work in smaller, manageable transects heading south toward Churchill Drive, replanting as we clear. This side of the Park has not been cleared before so the invasive plants are mature and thick.

Tools, gloves, & instruction provided on-site. Phone Judy at 250-472-0515 or email to jandd_spearing@shaw.ca if further information needed.
Time: 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Location: adjacent to Seaview Motel and Resort - 4550 Cordova Bay Road
