Around 100 North Saanich students rolled up their sleeves yesterday to remove ivy and other invasive species from Lillian Hoffar Park.
The Greater Victoria Green Team (GVGT) recruited the students for its youth event. The GVGT launched in 2014 and is a regional-wide environmental volunteer program. To date the group has engaged over 3,600 volunteers in hands-on environmental and educational volunteer activities.
A group of 25 community volunteers will be back at Lillian Hoffar on Saturday, June 10, followed by an event on Saturday, June 17 where a group of volunteers take on North Saanich forest (part of Strata 768).
