Date and Time

October 27, 28, 29, 2022, 9:00 am – 3:30 pm

Location

Kus-kus-sum, 1901 Comox Road – Enter the site by the gate at the south end of the site

Description

We have another 2,000 plants arriving at the Kus-kus-sum site next week and are looking to get them all in the ground before the end of October. The plants will be a mix of upland trees and shrubs and marsh sedges. Conditions may get muddy. The site is bumpy and uneven, so we ask that you are physically able to navigate rough terrain and engage in planting activities such as digging holes and lifting plants.

We will have school groups join us for the mornings and volunteers will be asked to help students as nesseccary. This may mean that adults do more of the digging. Our current dates are Thursday (27), Friday (28) and Saturday (29). The morning shift will be from 9 am to 12 noon and the afternoon shift 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm. You may signup for one or both shifts a day. We will be limiting the number of participants to 15 per shift. We will have water (to fill water bottles) and snacks on site for volunteers.

Please:

  • Dress for the weather
  • Wear sturdy shoes or boots
  • Bring a water bottle

Note: There will still be plants to plant next spring as more of the site is regraded to the correct elevations for the plants.
