Ivy Weeding with the Oathill Lake Conservation Society

bring spades, trowels, loppers, shears, brown paper yard waste bags as you are able.

“One of the best examples of citizen activism in HRM is the Oathill Lake Conservation Society. The Society monitors water quality in Oathill Lake and has carried out projects to improve the lake environment including the creation of an artificial wetland off Oathill Crescent and the installation of a pump to create turnover in the water column. The Society has been busily tackling invasvive species in the Park including knotweed, and multiflora rose. Their latest target is the English Ivy that is blanketing the woodland in the Park near the Beckfoot entrance. If you would like to lend a hand, bring spades, loppers, shears and brown paper yard waste bags. It's recommended to cover your arms and legs to prevent other plants from scratching.” - Sam Austin newsletter
