Invasive Plant Removal – Sunday 1-3pm

Have a few hours to get outside this weekend?

Why not join us in Uplands Park on Sunday (1-3pm) to help remove scotch broom and crow garlic?

COVID protocols in place and tools provided – just dress for the weather and meet us at the Cattle Point Info Kiosk.

Not only will you help restore an invaluable example of the endangered Garry oak ecosystem and help native wildflowers like harvest brodiaea (pictured; Brodiaea coronaria), you’ll hear from Margaret and Wylie (FOUP’s president and vice-president) on the importance of the park’s ecosystems and the work being done to protect them!

Hope to see you there 😉

Scotch Broom Blitz: THIS SUNDAY 1-3PM

Meet us at the Cattle Point kiosk (near the 1st boat ramp) at 1pm.

As its distinctive yellow flowers give rise to more camouflaged green seed pods, this highly invasive plant is our top priority to remove from the park right now.

We’ll teach you the proper removal techniques, provide you clean tools to use and socially-distanced spaces to work while learning about what makes Uplands Park such an eco-treasure to protect.

Your contribution is needed and immensely appreciated – over and above the critical invasive removal you do, every single volunteer hour that you donate helps to secure the necessary funding that underpins the comprehensive, multi year restoration plan for the park, which is working to give this truly exceptional example of the endangered Garry Oak meadow ecosystem a chance of surviving for years to come!

Please spread the work and come out and join us!
