Join Friends of Uplands Park to remove the extreme invasive carpet burweed on Cattle Point. Although small, it can cover and destroy the colourful wildflowers. Prickly seeds in May and June stick on shoes, clothes, fur and dog paws to spread to your yard and to sports fields. This is a real nasty weed. We need your help to weed.

The Friends of Uplands Park has invited 3 geologists from the Geological Survey, BC Ministry of Energy and Mines, to lead a tour to help us learn how to recognize key geological clues of the ancient and not-so ancient history of Cattle Point. Cattle Point has both fascinating bedrock features and preserved traces of ice and meltwater streams from the last glaciation.
