Riparian Maintenance

Time and Duration: spring/summer/fall, as little or as much as you wish

This activity involves doing maintenance in riparian areas that we have rehabilitated under the Cowichan Shoreline Stewardship Project.  Typical activities involve removal of invasive plants (e.g. blackberry) and watering or fertilizing of native plants.  All sites are local to Lake Cowichan, you may have to arrange your own transportation however we do encourage car pooling.
