Rivers Day

Sunday, September 27, 2020 | Heywood Park

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of BC Rivers Day, City staff and City Park Steward volunteers will be removing invasive plants in Heywood Park. Invasive plant removal is fundamental for the restoration of parks and stream habitat in the City. Removing invasive plants ensures the native species are protected and can thrive for years to come.

The City is also installing permanent signage to raise awareness of protecting stream habitat. 

Sign up to Volunteer

Volunteering is a great way to learn about your parks and the native plants. New volunteers are welcome and no experience is necessary. Want to get involved?  Register here.
