Pit House Park April 5 2016

The Greater Victoria Green Team, Colwood Parks, Esquimalt Lagoon Stewardship Initiative and Dunsmuir Middle School students were the very FIRST volunteers to help restore Pit House Park in Colwood! We removed mature Scotch Broom and Himalayan Blackberry from the park that is adjacent to the Esquimalt Lagoon. This is the start of a long project and the school is excited to continue to help!

Thank you Colwood Parks staff, Gord for helping organizing. And to Colwood Council and staff for supporting our volunteer program in Colwood and for providing a grant to help with volunteer efforts in the parks

Thank you to all the volunteers for attending: Mosleh, Judy and Beth and the the teachers and students of Dunsmuir: Teachers Tim and Chris, and students!
