c. Web site – Lori continues to work on this. Check out Whitehead Park page where she has added text and pictures covering our restoration work.

5. Projects:

a. Whitehead Park – We are now working on the final third of the east side. We are removing blackberries and other invasives. We decided to plant the area as we clear it which will mean watering new plantings through the summer but prevent too much reinvasion. Last fall’s plantings are doing well. We have done some weeding around them and deer predation has not been heavy so far.



b. Killarney Creek Fan Project – We are working on getting permissions and paper work to do this project in August. Mary and Winona will work on this. 

c. Water Quality Monitoring (DO) – time to go out again on our monthly sampling. Mary and Lin will go this weekend.

d. Maltby Lake – Woody has talked to lawyer John Alexander about the process of subdivision and lake access. Bruce Hacking, who was handling this file, has retired from Saanich.

6. Heritage – AGM is 5th May at Maltby Lake starting with a walk around the lake at 1:00pm followed by the meeting.

7. Gift Certificates. Joanne reports we have two gift certificates from a wholesale nursery that must be used by June 30th. Mary will talk to Saanich about taking advantage of these for plants in the newly cleared area of Whitehead. 

8. Next Meeting – Sept 4th at Audrey Barnes’, 140 Kiowa Place
