Remove Ivy, Gorse & other invasive plants from Anderson Hill Park!

Sunday, November 19 @ 10:45 am - 2:00 pm

Anderson Hill is a majestic place that contains the rare Garry-oak rock outcrop ecosystem.

There is lots of work still needed to clear other nasty invasive plants out of this beautiful place.
