Our mission is to create stewardships for each park in North Saanich. There are 24 parks in North Saanich in need of restoring. We are removing invasive plant species out of these parks while building relationships within the community.
We hope to remove all the invasive plant species out of a series of parks per year as well as support the development of stewardships for these parks.
We have removed 99% of the invasive species from RO Bull Park. In response, the numbers of Trilliums has increased almost 10 times!
In Lillian Hoffar Park, we have removed about 80% of the Daphne and we are hard at work removing ivy and Himalayan blackberry.
Our youth program is primarily centered on Lillian Hoffar Park and Denham Till Park respectively. We also had the 10th Tsartlip scouts work in Quarry Park. We appreciate the help of all youth in our parks.
