Success! Restoring Oak Haven

On January 24, a crew of 23 fantastic volunteers made a huge impact to the ecology of Oak Haven Park. Removing over 3 pick-up truck loads worth of invasive species, primarily Scotch Broom and Daphne Laurel, the native wildflowers in the open meadows of the park will have more sunlight for germination this coming spring. 

Oak Haven Park is a Central Saanich 10.2 hectare hilltop park with a HAT Conservation Covenant in place to protect the Garry Oak ecosystems and other important ecological features.

A big thank you to JJ's Coffee House (7088 W Saanich Rd, Brentwood Bay) for donating delicious coffee to our volunteers!


This Event was made possible by TD Friends of the Environment Foundation
