Invasive Species Removal at Pacific Spirit Regional Park [POSTPONED]

Pacific Spirit Park Society (PSPS) does restoration work year-round in Pacific Spirit Regional Park and we are invited to help out and volunteer with them! They are working on doing some invasive species removal for their new restoration site and need some extra hands to get dirty, get outside, and get involved!

When: 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
What are we doing: Invasive Species Removal at Pacific Spirit Regional Park
