About the Event

Scotch Broom is an invader that uses chemical warfare to take over native habitat.  Help stop the takeover of our Island and join us in the third annual Ursula Poepel Broom Bash.  

Start bashing that broom on your own property! Help your neighbour! Start cutting broom right away and if you have room, stash it in a corner on your property where it will decay.

If you have a lot of broom, you can bring it down to our drop-off sites where it will be taken away to be composted.  The drop off sites between May 15-28 ONLY are at Danny Martin Park parking lot (off Buccaneers)on North Pender, and at 9861 Spalding Road on South Pender. Please ensure that you ONLY have broom plants and NO SEEDS.

Although we recognize the need for Daphne removal on the island, we are NOT able to accept it at our drop off sites. DO NOT burn Daphne, find a location on your property to pile it and allow it to decompose is best for disposal.

If you do not have a way to get your broom to the drop off sites, please contact us at  Our volunteer coordinator will arrange pick up for a Tuesday, Thursday or Sunday from May 16-28. Donations are welcome for this service.

No ticket necessary to participate in the this important stewardship event.
