Weedbusters 2017-8

Join us as we continue to make progress at the Piper Spit Riparian area. We will continue to remove any invasive plants that we missed earlier in the season and also spread mulch in preparation for planting at the EcoBlitz on October 22.

Come prepared for the weather and wear sturdy footwear as we will be working off the trails. Wear long sleeves and pants to protect yourself from the blackberry thorns. Gloves, tools, equipment and refreshments provided.

Join us! Ages 8+ Please drop us a quick reply at info@burnabylakepark.ca  to help us plan for refreshments.

Fall 2017 Stewardship dates

Mark your calendars! save-the-date-ozark-chamber-of-commerce-missouri-t6kzdg-clipart

We hope you’ve had a good August and were able to get out and enjoy the sunshine and perhaps get out and explore more Metro Vancouver Regional Parks to celebrate the 50th Anniversary and get your passports stamped. 

It’s hard to believe it’s September already and the unofficial start to Fall. We have the dates of our stewardship activities here including our two EcoBlitzes in October.  We’ll add details to our listings in our Event Calendar as we find out more.  If you have any specific questions or are thinking about bringing your community or corporate group, please contact Ann, our Volunteer Coordinator at info@burnabylakepark.ca.  If you can RSVP, it will be helpful to us to plan for snacks and equipment.

See you in the park!
