Invasive plant pull at Macdonald Wood Park

Macdonald Wood Park Society removing invasive plants within the Comox park

The Macdonald Wood Park Society will be removing invasive plants within the park on March 9, and the public is invited to help out.

• Meet at the entrance portal of Macdonald Woods, at the corner of Balmoral Avenue and Croteau Road at 9 a.m.

• Wear work gloves and dress for the weather.

• Extra tools and collection bags will be available.

• Focus will be on ivy, holly and Daphne laurel.

“MWPS facilitated the purchase of this jewel over 20 years ago, now owned by the Town of Comox,” said an MWPS spokesperson, in an email. “We are in battle with the invasive plants that smother the forest floor and threaten wildlife. For more than a dozen years, at much expense, MWPS has hired a team to manage and pull these trouble-makers. Last year we had a volunteer invasive pull that was so successful, and fun, we have decided to make it an annual event.”

Should there be a change due to weather conditions, it will be posted on the society’s website, mwps.ca
