Restoration of Playfair Park's Garry Oak Meadow: a work in progress
with Colleen O'Brien

Since 2010, Colleen has given more than 5,000 hours and lead Playfair Park's volunteer efforts to liberate camas and other native plants from the clutches of dense alien grasses. She has developed a method to control invasive annual grasses and herbaceous weeds and has even rescued a red-listed species in the process. Colleen will explain how to remove alien grasses and weeds while putting best restoration methods into practice.
