Getting Ready for Spring at Burnaby Lake

Join us for another stewardship work party with the Burnaby Lake Park Association.

We are focusing on the east end of Burnaby Lake around the Avalon Parking Lot and Cariboo Dam. Please come and help us get the area ready for the change to the warmer season ahead with bird nesting activity and the new spring growth.

We have 2 tasks:

  1. Servicing the nest boxes that are in the area and
  2. Planting native plants to finish a job we started in the fall.

Please come dressed for the weather and be prepared to work off trails. Wear warm, dry clothing and sturdy, waterproof footwear. We provide all the tools and equipment you’ll need and will have refreshments on hand.
