May Flowers at Last!

Rhododendron Festival Image 2017

It was long, weary winter and a very wet Spring so far. We’re hoping all those April showers are resulting in some gorgeous May flowers with more blue skies and warmer days ahead. We’ll be at the annual City of Burnaby Rhodofest on Sunday with information about invasive species, nest boxes and our activities at Burnaby Lake Regional Park. The forecast is for a sunny warm day – See you there!

EagleCreek2017

Eagle Creek begins on Burnaby Mountain where it is fed by a large watershed, runs through Montecito and the nearby Squint Lake, through Burnaby Mountain Golf Course, culverted under Broadway and Lougheed Highway, runs through Charles Rummel Park, along Warner Loat Park to Burnaby Lake. Salmon are a native part of Eagle Creek’s ecosystem. The members of the Eagle Creek Streamkeeper Society protect, preserve and enhance the Eagle Creek watershed habitat, through environmental education and volunteer involvement.  Contact details are on the poster.
