Green Team to host rehab day at Ayum Creek

Activity focused on restoring habitat

The Greater Victoria Green Team and The Land Conservancy of B.C. will host an environmental rehab day at Ayum Creek on Oct. 6.

Earlier this month the two groups and a handful of volunteers worked to remove re-sprouts of invasive Periwinkle and cover the site with cardboard to restore a section of the forest habitat.

The Green Team organizes more than 50 different hands-on environmental and educational activities per year across the Capital Regional District.

Activities are focused on restoring habitat like removing invasive species, planting native vegetation, picking up litter from beaches and building trails.

The Oct. 6 runs from 9:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. Lunch is included.

For more information, please call 778-677-9078.
