Saturday, November 21, 2020 - Ed McGregor Park clean up    Note: this event has been CANCELLED due to the surge in covid-19 cases
JdF CTS members have made a great start on Ed McGregor Park but that Spurge Laurel Daphne laureola and the ivy are growing back. In this covid-19 year it is not possible to organize another community wide clean up but it is a safe distanced out door activity for a smaller group to set those invasive back again.

Everyone would provide their own tools & gloves and work 2 metres apart following covid-19 protocol. We plan to be there from 9-12. Please reserve the date. More information will follow.
