The Point Ellice restoration site is looking quite beautiful this year – many of the native shrubs and perennials are really filling out and the ivy is not returning with such vigour. Their goal for 2012 is to finish removing all the invasives from the site by the end of summer.
They have several work parties lined up over the summer and hope you can make it to some or all of them.
Sunday May 27th
Sunday June 24th
Sunday July 22nd
Sunday August 26th (tentative)
All work parties are from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm and gloves, tools and snacks are provided. Wear old clothes, and sturdy shoes or boots. Bring a friend and introduce them to the joys of the Gorge Waterway and the satisfaction of eradicating some ivy!
Point Ellice House is located at 2616 Pleasant St, just near the Bay St Bridge.
