Southlands property to be spruced up

Members of the Mirrors Programme will join forces with the Department of Parks to clean up the Southlands property in Warwick.

Teams will unite and will clear natural debris, trash and abandoned furniture and learn about the history of endemic and invasive plants and trees, according to a press release from the Bermuda Government.

The clean-ups will take place on June 29, July 20, August 17, September 21 and November 2, from 9am to 2pm.

Attorney-General Kathy Lynn Simmons said: “We are delighted to see the collaboration between two government departments to harness the power of knowledge and expertise in one part of the community and pass it to a younger generation to ensure the preservation of our natural assets for every Bermudian and visitor.”

Lieutenant-Colonel David Burch, the Minister for Public Works, said: “I am pleased to see two departments and members of the community coming together to ensure the preservation of our ecological heritage and the further education of young Bermudians in how to sustain our open spaces and parks.”
