Timeline: 2017 onwards
The goal is to restore Phyllis Rawlinson Park to a healthy and diverse ecosystem while maintaining it as a recreational site for trail users. The City is undertaking work to improve this natural area as it has been heavily overtaken by buckthorn, an aggressive invasive plant that takes over and provides very poor habitat for local wildlife and native plants. This project includes the removal of buckthorn, herbicide treatment, planting and monitoring.
