Glen Urquhart Creek, meeting at 10th Street East and Williams Street

If you are going to volunteer, we ask that you dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes, bring a water bottle and gardening gloves (we will have plenty to borrow if you don’t have any or forget yours!).

Earthworks Continue at Kus-kus-sum
