Community volunteers are invited to join the Comox Valley Broombusters at the No. 1 Japanese Town Historic Site in Coal Creek Historic Park on Saturday, May 9, 2020 from 9:30 am to noon.
All participants are asked to abide by Physical Distancing protocols and other pandemic health and safety measures (i.e. not attend if you’re sick; not congregate or work in close proximity to others; not share tools, snacks or water, etc).
Bring your work gloves, knee pads and water. It is recommended that you wear long pants, long sleeve shirt and sturdy footwear. Please bring your own loppers (but advice will be provided!).
The group will meet at the parking area at the historic site. The site is accessed off Comox Lake Road, marked by the red “No. 1 Japanese Town Historic Site” sign.
