Juan de Fuca Community Trails Society Removes Invasive Species (Photos)

Wednesday, August 11, 2021 – A small team from the Juan de Fuca Community Trails Society gathered to tackle some invasive species removal at Whiffin Spit. The crew removed several less obvious non-native plants before they spread including hedge mustard, feverfew, fennel, silver dollar plant, toad flax to name a few. Among the volunteers, Jessica Boquist, the District of Sooke’s Parks and Environmental Services Coordinator – a long-time Sooke resident and environmental field expert.

Would you like to learn about invasive species in the Sooke region and assist with removal? The District is considering hosting seasonal events should residents be interested in this opportunity. Let us know by taking 30-seconds to express your interest.
