City Park Stewards Want You!

City Park Stewards

Want to get out into our parks and get your hands dirty while making a difference? Then come join in the fun with the City Park Stewards!

Since 2001, the City has partnered with Evergreen on this fantastic award winning project called the City Park Rehabilitation Project. It was created as a means to give back to our degraded natural areas, suffering from the effects of intensive recreational use, stream bank erosion and invasive plants. Stewardship is a satisfying and rewarding way to experience the natural areas in the City and contribute in a meaningful way to the ecological health of these areas.

You can get involved! Evergreen hosts year-round public stewardship and restoration activities throughout the City of North Vancouver, including free interpretive walks, workshops and a monthly stewardship event the fourth Saturday of each month.


Upcoming City Park Stewards Events:

Saturday February 24th from 9 am – 12 pm: Mosquito Creek Park
Join Evergreen at 17th St. W and Fell Avenue (MAP) on the 4th Saturday of the month to remove invasive blackberry, ivy, laurel, and clematis. This event will bring together volunteers to help rehabilitate urban green spaces in the City of North Vancouver. Bring your friends and family, and join in the fun!

Saturday March 24th from 9 am – 12 pm: Upper Heywood Park
This will be our first planting event of 2018! Meet Evergreen at 21st St. W and Hamilton Avenue (MAP) to plant native species in Upper Heywood Park. We’ve removed the invasives, and by planting native plants, the ecosystem will be restored significantly. Event goes ahead rain or shine, and everyone is welcome.

Earth Day Sunday April 22nd from 12 pm – 3 pm: Location To Be Announced
The City of North Vancouver, Evergreen, and many community partners will come together on Earth Day to celebrate our environment! Stay tuned for details.

Everyone is welcome and no experience is necessary. Evergreen will supply all the training, tools, gloves, and refreshments. All events go ahead rain or shine, so please come dressed for the weather, with sturdy shoes, and in clothing you don't mind getting a bit dirty. Arrive in style - please consider walking, cycling, taking public transit, or carpooling with friends to the event.

To RSVP and to learn more about this program, contact Julia Gellman, Evergreen Greenspace Programs Coordinator at jgellman@evergreen.ca or 604-689-0766 ext. 9253.
