Community Cuts in Campbell River
Good News! Campbell River passed a bylaw to limit Scotch broom in Campbell River! Events are being planned by a coalition of bike clubs, city government, environmental groups and Broombusters. The goal is to clear the broom from Jubilee Parkway and the city. Contact Morgan if you want to help!
Hello fellow Broombusters,
We are cutting broom on a regular basis at the east end of Jubilee Parkway.
It has been very difficult to suppress the growth of broom in that area.
This year we are planning to sprinkle grass seed in the area where the broom
has been cut. As you know broom seed only germinates where sunlight beams
directly. Grass will grow more quickly than broom seed so we are hoping
that will suppress further outbursts of broom.
Walter and I go out almost every day to cut broom on the Parkway, generally
in the morning for an hour or two. Please join us if you can. Call me to
confirm where exactly we will be.
Rotary Club will join with Broombusters this year on Saturday morning ,
June 1 for a big cut around the Willow Creek bridge on the Parkway. This is
an annual activity and is always fun. This year, Strategic Forestry Wildfire
Fighters will be joining us on the Parkway but we haven’t got a fixed date
as it is dependent on if they get a call-out to fight fire.

NOTICE from Area Organizer, Morgan Ostler
Broombusters need your help to create a BROOM FREE environment in Campbell River. Home owners and land owners in the municipality must now remove broom from your own property. Failure to do so may result in serious consequences such as a visit from the Bylaw Officer.
Broombusters is a volunteer organization and its’ members remove broom from major roads and streets. It is up to you to clear broom from your own property. For detailed information on how to cut down this invasive plant please visit the Broombusters.org site.
When driving anywhere on Vancouver Island you can see that broom is quickly invading every roadway, every ditch and every open piece of land. We all must take action.!
For more information on Bylaw #3551 please visit the City of Campbell River site. Thank you for helping us to make our city free of the “Blooming Broom.”
