Eastlake Ivy Pull 2010
This is a popular swimming area leading directly from rocks into deep water. Over the years the rocks and trees had been swallowed up by English ivy. We were delighted to have over 22 volunteers ranging in age from a few months to over 80 years old. In two hours we removed a huge amount of ivy from the ground and the trees. Most of the volunteers were immediate neighbours glad to help restore a popular area, but two people came from North Saanich to join in the fun. The event was arranged in conjunction with the Invasive Plant Council of BC who through their Communities Pulling Together Programme gave an honourarium of $250 to be spent for conservation.
A big thank you to all who took part, to IPCBC and to Saanich Parks who picked up the big pile.
