Garry Oak Meadow Marathon

Parks and conservation groups across southern Vancouver Island are hosting volunteer events to help restore our Garry oak meadows. This multi-partner marathon aims to raise awareness and support restoration efforts of the unique and sensitive Garry oak habitats of southern Vancouver Island.

With over thirty events ranging from bashing broom and eradicating ivy, to tending native seedlings and learning at specialized workshops, there are many options for both new and experienced participants. Events take place during the week and on weekends with a chance to win awesome nature prizes.
