For the 2019 season, we are using a new strategy to eradicate Burdock. We invite you, the Whistler community, to adopt the Valley Trail! As participants, you can form a team with your family, friends or co-workers, and show our dear trail some love!

Committing to Adopt-A-Trail means that you are responsible for keeping a short segment of the Valley Trail burdock-free for the length of the season. In doing so, you will contribute to keeping our pets bur-free and get a little fresh air while you were at it!

Ready to get started? Please use the map to select your Valley Trail section.

Disposal Recommendations for Common Burdock

  • If flowering heads or burrs are present, please cut the stems to remove these parts from the rest of the plant.
  • The flowering heads and burrs should be bagged and disposed of in the household/general waste stream at any of the transfer stations.
  • Do not place them in the compost bin, as the seeds will persist through the composting process. Otherwise, any other plant parts can be left to decompose at the site of removal.

Thank you to our sponsors!
