The Greater Victoria Green Team organized a youth-focused, hands-on educational activity along Colwood Creek beside Brookes Westshore School. Students of Brookes spent the morning helping restore the riparian habitat by removing invasive plants – mostly Daphne!

Thank-you to everyone for participating: students and teachers from Brookes Westshore, plus Dani and Judy for attending and helping extra!
