On Wednesday, April 2 Cowichan Lake and River Stewardship Society members, and Lake Cowichan School’s Lake Studies program students, participated in a restoration work party at Saywell Park.
The volunteers spread mulch and planted ground cover. Wednesday’s efforts mark the near completion of the Saywell Park Project which began a year ago with the removal of the blackberry vines that had invaded and choked the natural vegetation along the shoreline.
Future work will include additional mulching and maintenance. Descriptive and informative signage regarding the Saywell Park Project will be put up by the Town of Lake Cowichan in the near future.
