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, November 25, 2017 - 9 am - 12 pm – Heywood Park
    Evergreen is hosting our last invasive plant pull for the year at our one of our favourite sites, Heywood Park. Help dig up blackberry and chop down holly to rehabilitate the riparian zones in North Vancouver. Meet at Hamilton and 21st St W in Lucas Fields of Heywood Park (MAP). More information available here.

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.
