The Friends of Cedar Hill Park have been active in maintaining the natural areas of the Park since 2006. Our work is done in the natural areas of the Park outside golf course boundaries under the Saanich Pulling Together Volunteer Program.
Weekly invasive species removal at preplanned areas of the Park: We work under the direction of Lead Steward, Jim Moores every Monday morning from 9 am until 12 noon. Please let us know if you would like to join us through our email address: FriendsofCedarHillPark@gmail.com
On Monday, August 20, we’ll return to where we worked on July 30 and August 13 near the park entrance from Camrose Crescent (location) and continue cutting any blackberry that has sprouted and any other invasive plants such as Daphne, ivy, broom. Cut the blackberry tight to the ground and chop it up some so that it will lie flat and eventually rot. As we are working beside an active play area of the golf course for No. 4 tee, the fairway to the south from No. 4 and the fairway NW to No. 3 hole, watch & listen for golfers if working out near the fairway.
Usual time is 9:00 am to noon. Meet near our Pulling Together sign board beside the chip trail.
If driving there is some parking on Camrose Crescent. Access is off Maplewood.
Thank you for your volunteer time & work!
At your request, we will add you to our weekly email to advise where we will meet. You will need good boots, old clothes and garden gloves. We will provide the necessary tools. No experience is necessary.
