Parks Canada is working to restore Garry oak ecosystems at Fort Rodd Hill. Introduced invasive plants such as Scotch broom, daphne, and ivy are being removed to improve general ecosystem health and give rare and “at risk” plants a chance to recover. This is a good area to teach about Garry oak ecosystems as a number of Garry oak patches are visible from public areas and designated trails. The site is home to seven plant species at risk.
Volunteer opportunities are available throughout the year. Phone or email to help restore Garry oak ecosystems at one of Parks Canada’s most beautiful sites.
