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!

Easter Sunday Planting in Cattle Point

This past Sunday, we worked under a stand of June Plum (Oemleria cerasiformis) in an area of Cattle Point, weeding and planting White Faun Lilies (Erythronium oregonum) that Margaret has been nurturing at her home for the past few years.

We had the pleasure of discovering a few Pink Faun Lilies (Erythronium revolutum) in bloom as well!

With time and care, we hope to help nurture another lovely patch of these amazing native wildflowers, like the one that is not far from our worksite (pictured).

Thanks to all who came out to take part!

We hope to see you out next Sunday – 1:00PM at the Cattle Point Kiosk (or follow the flags if you arrive late).
