Burnaby Rhododendron Festival 2018

This charming annual festival produced by the City of Burnaby in collaboration with the Burnaby Rhododendron & Gardens Society, promotes the long-term sustainable, ecological health of our communities.

We`ll be there with our information booth to highlight native versus invasive species, and amazing the work our volunteers do at Burnaby Lake Regional Park.

Festival highlights include variety entertainment, rovers, mini-workshops, horticultural and nature tours, plant sales, and interactive arts activities. A silent auction, artisan, and pottery sales are always crowd-pleasing favourites at this fun-filled festival!

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!
