BCInvasiveSpeciesActionMonth
Be a Champion for Native Plants!

May has been proclaimed Invasive Species Action Month in BC. Take positive action against invasive species. Learn all about native and invasive plants and animals, and how to tell them apart.

Join the Burnaby Lake Park Association in tackling and removing invasive species: non-native plants that have become established and replaced native species around Burnaby Lake. We’ll provide gloves, tools, and snacks. Dress for the weather and be prepared to work off-trail in the woods. Join us! Ages 8+

Check here to see how to get to the park by transit or driving.

You can request to be added to the email list that gets sent out with confirmation of meeting locations and times, or if there are any weather related updates.

Join us! On Saturday, May 13, the BLPA will be presenting our display at our friends, the Stoney Creek Environment Committee annual fish release, The Great Salmon Send Off.  This event creates awareness about Stoney Creek’s urban ecosystem and serves to protect it through eco-friendly practices and green alternatives. The highlight of the event is the release of salmon smolts into the creek. In addition to the fish release, there will be live entertainment, family-friendly activities, snacks and different exhibits and booths!
