Weeding assistance requested in Colwood

Community invasive species pull scheduled for Saturday

The Habitat Acquisition Trust is looking for some helping hands to pitch in on a cleanup Saturday (March 14) at Havenwood Park in Colwood.

The aim is to continue the good fight to eliminate weeds, with a focus on daphne, English ivy and Scotch broom.

If you would like to participate, show up at the Veterans Memorial Parkway entrance to Havenwood Park at 9:30 a.m. for orientation. The cleanup is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wear sturdy boots and gloves and bring a water bottle. Treats to share are encouraged. Water, coffee and tools will be supplied.
