Anderson Hill Park July 4, 2020

The Greater Victoria Green Team organized a safe and fun, eco-volunteer activity at Anderson Hill Park in Oak Bay! We removed an area of English Ivy, Daphne and Blackberry to open room for native species to return! We followed careful health and safety guidelines to keep our community safe!


Thank-you to everyone for participating: Alwyn, Andre, Barbara, Blue, Chris, Dante, Deanna, Elle, Erin, Galaad, Helena, Jacquie, Jennifer, Jenny K, Jill, Julian, Kariss, Karlis, Kurt, Logan, Melina, Meredith, Richard, Riley and Terra.
