- Matterhorn Trail Closure. The TimberWest Forest Company will be harvesting the areas shown shaded orange and outlined on this 1:10,000 scale map (11Mb file) in 2017. Road construction activities have already begun in preparation for the harvesting which will be conducted between March and July and again between September and December 2017. Work may be ongoing seven days per week. Because of the potential dangers associated with active road construction and harvesting activities, this portion of TimberWest’s private property is strictly off limits until all harvesting work is complete. The Prime Contractor responsible for the worksite safety will be blocking access routes through the site to prevent un-authourized entry.
- Now that we have broom on the run on the Whiffin Spit, we are ready to take on the Ivy at Ed Mc Gregor Park! Juan de Fuca Community Trails and the District of Sooke are Removing ivy on Sunday September 25, 2016 9am - 3pm. We will be joined by the Greater Victoria Green Team.
- 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.
