After the February fires there's lots of work to be done to clean up the Port Hills.

Bridle path

The burnt areas beside the Summit Road have revealed a lot of rubbish. This is an opportunity to clean it up before weeds cover it, creating an environmental hazard.  

Show your love for the Port Hills by taking part in this massive clean-up job from Sugarloaf to Cass Peak. It's a great chance for large groups and teams to give back to this area that's loved and used by many.
