May Flowers at Last!

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!

We have an Environmental Star!

The City of Burnaby’s Environmental Awards Program recognizes the outstanding environmental achievements of individuals, groups, organizations and companies in Burnaby.

The BLPA is so pleased to announce that one of our own, Dave Stafford has been recognized as an “Environmental Star” in Community Stewardship. Congratulations Dave and thank you for all you have done for Burnaby Lake Regional Park, its community and the BLPA.

David has been an energetic volunteer with the Burnaby Lake Park Association since 2004 From cleaning out nest boxes, removing invasive species, planting, representing the BLPA at community events. In recent years, he has developed and led the recycling/composting program at Burnaby Lake events including the BLPA, Burnaby Lake Rowing Club, Canoe Club,Wildlife Rescue Association of BC and Burnaby Horsemen’s Association. This program has diverted hundreds of kg from the landfill; money from returnables goes back to the organization and unclaimed items to those in need. He is a familiar figure to those who frequent the park. He has also served terms on the BLPA board of directors including 2 years as Chair.

Dave was presented his award by Mayor Derek Corrigan at the Burnaby Council meeting on Monday, May 16.
