This unique program was offered in 2019. It gave participants an opportunity to learn about and experience ecological restoration work being done in Vancouver, BC at that time.
Saturdays, Sept. 21 to Oct. 26, 2019, 10:00 AM to 12 noon
What role can citizens take in caring for public lands? In this 6 week program, we’ll tour 4 local sites where citizen groups are restoring habitats for birds, fish, and other animals. The outdoor sessions will include a tour of the site and an opportunity for hands-on work. The hands-on work is optional; however, efforts will be made to have tasks available for all fitness levels.
In the two indoor sessions at Mt. Pleasant Community Centre, we’ll learn about how the City of Vancouver is planning to be the “Greenest City”in 2020 and beyond, the Vancouver Park Board’s “Biodiversity Plan,” and “The Wisdom of Plants and Indigenous Stewardship” with educator and herbalist Lori Snyder.
