Father’s Day on Chalet Creek

This post is a little late coming, but I wanted to thank everyone that participated in last month’s workparty on Chalet Creek…here is a summary of the day from one of our volunteers.

To celebrate Father’s Day, a group of new and “old” Peninsula Streams members and their families managed to clear a new trail through almost impenetrable North Saanich jungle. The trail is over a metre wide and runs for about 160 metres. It is the first stage of work for a proposed berm and flow control system to ensure summer flow of water down Chalet Creek. The day was sunny and just the right temperature for a group of Stantec Environmental Consultants to join us for a rewarding morning in the field. Peninsula Streams Society is looking forward to having the young, keen and knowledgeable Stantec employees as active members to work on any of our many projects.

After a brief refreshment break, everyone moved down the road to save nine trees from extermination by ivy and to remove other invasive species like Daphne and brambles. A good time was had by all.

A big thank you to all who participated.
