- Broom pull on Whiffen Spit. Broom is stubborn and recalcitrant stuff. It keeps coming back. The Juan de Fuca Community Trails Society and the District of Sooke have been combating it on the Whiffin Spit since 2007. I am happy to report that Indian Plum, red Flowering Current and Black Coast Gooseberry can be seen.
This year we are joined by the Greater Victoria Green Team for our 2015 pulls. The broom is early this year and so are our work parties. These will take place on Wednesday April 8 from 9am - noon with students from Edward Milne Community School helping and on Saturday April 11 from 9am - 2 pm with all comers.
We need people to help, bringing broom pullers, loppers, pruners and gloves to pull big broom and hunt out and destroy small broom trying to make a come back. We do have some tools to loan out. Please join us on either day, for the full time or for an hour or to. For more information contact Rosemary Jorna at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 250.642.2767.

- Limited access to the Matterhorn Trail until June 1, 2015. TimberWest Forest Company is currently building roads (falling right-of-way timber, drilling & blasting, construction, etc.) in District Lot 921 off Branch SH-100 (Tieulie Place). Due to the close proximity to the Matterhorn Trail we ask that you avoid accessing DL 921 lands during working hours.
The Prime Contractor responsible for the worksite safety has blocked access routes through the site to prevent un-authourized entry.
Your co-operation is much appreciated. See Map
