Everyone is welcome including families and children to come on out and join in the broom bash at George Hill Park on Pender Island Saturday, May 10, 9am to noon. The goal is to remove invasive broom and to restore the native habitat of this park. You may be treated to spring flowers of the Garry Oak ecosystem such as fawn lilies, chocolate lilies, nodding onions, and camas are in bloom at this time of year!
Lunch and live music for volunteers will be provided between noon and 2pm. Meeting place is at the trail head at the top end of the Upper Terrace Road. (Parking is limited in Port Washington area so carpooling is recommended). Please bring gloves, hat, water (those who are available to cut down the broom need to bring loppers or small saw). Organized by Jackie Gill and Diane Swindell, on behalf of Pender Island Field Naturalists.
This event is sponsored by the Pender Island Field Naturalists, and supported by PIPRC, CRD and PICA. Please register in advance by phoning Jackie Gill at 250-629-0047 or email firstname.lastname@example.org (to estimate numbers for lunch, etc).
