Come help remove invasive alien plants from the Garry Oak woodland in a newly-protected natural areas park in View Royal. GOERT has been working with the Town of View Royal to create a restoration plan for this park. Now you can be part of the inaugural volunteer work party to restore the park’s Garry Oak ecosystems. Meet fellow GOERT volunteers and members, enjoy refreshments, and be the first to remove invasive plants at ‘Burnside Corners Park’.
Parking is available along the street and off Watkiss Way on Talcott Road. Please leave pets and small children at home.
To register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 250-383-3427.
Garry Oak Ecosystems: In all of Canada, Garry Oak and associated ecosystems occur only on southeastern Vancouver Island (Victoria area to the Comox Valley), on the Gulf Islands and in two isolated areas in the Fraser Valley. Today, only about one per cent of these ecosystems remain in near-natural condition in the Capital Regional District.
