Drivers using Ryan Road on Wednesday, May 22 are advised that members of 19 Wing Comox will work alongside the road as they clear the invasive Scotch broom plant.
While most of the work will take place along the side of the road, motorists are asked to slow down and use caution while passing work crews.
This volunteer work is being done in conjunction with Broombusters, a Vancouver Island volunteer organization that helps control the spread of Scotch broom to prevent it from competing with indigenous plants and trees. This organization is providing tools and instruction on how to properly remove the plants to the 19 Wing volunteers.
