Volunteer Broom Removal Event

The Mayne Island Conservancy’s first broom removal event of 2013 will be at Henderson Park, Mayne Island, on January 24th from 1pm-3pm and we need volunteers!

We will meet at the parking lot by the kiosk. If you are unsure of how to get there please let us know. This is a great chance to get to know/enjoy Henderson Park and have some interesting conversations, all while getting some exercise. We will be working in an easier part of the park terrain-wise, no hiking will be required and the ground is not steep (no sides of hills for this removal day).
