Robin Hill Park August 2, 2020

Published on August 4, 2020 under GVGT in Action

The Greater Victoria Green Team organized a GVGT volunteer activity in collaboration with View Royal at Robin Hill Park. The habitat in this park is considered a rare habitat containing an assemblage of Garry Oak, Arbutus and Dull-Oregon Grape native species! We worked hard to remove Himalayan Blackberry that was crowding out the habitat in this park!
