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!

BLRC Midsummer Madness Regatta

Our lake community partner, the Burnaby Lake Rowing Club, will be hosting their annual Midsummer Regatta at the Pavilion.

It’s a great chance to get close to competitive rowing (the club has produced several Olympic team members) on a course that is considered to be one of the best in North America.

The BLPA will be on hand to help manage the recycling/composting and for part of the day, we will have an information display about the wildlife at the lake, water invasive species, the association and our activities.
