HeroWork, a Victoria-based non-profit organization, is helping Power To Be turn a former golf course at Prospect Lake into an inclusive and accessible recreation hub.
With their help – and hopefully yours too – accessible campsites and waterfront paths, as well as kayak, canoe, and paddleboard storage will all be created.
Parts of the site will also be naturalized, removing sand traps, tee boxes, fencing, and more to return the site to its natural state.
HeroWork has volunteer spots that need to be filled from Thursday, July 13 – Sunday, July 16.

The main task is pathway work, which entails raking, tampering, grading, and shovelling. Volunteers should be at least moderate strength, and if possible be able to supply their own tools (i.e. shovel, wheelbarrow, gloves, safety glasses). Long pants and closed toed shoes are mandatory, steel toed preferred.
A variety of shifts are available (food service, general labour, sodding of the fire pit roof, etc.), however, there is a specific need for landscape volunteers July 15 and 16.
