City Park Stewards

Upcoming City Park Stewards Events

Rivers Day Invasive Plant Pull - September 27th | Heywood Park North Vancouver
Only a few spots remain! Please register using the form below to participate in this event.

If you want to get out into our parks and get your hands dirty while making a difference then come join the fun with the City Park Stewards!


Since 2001, we've been running this award winning project called the City Park Rehabilitation Project. This project helps rejuvenate degraded natural areas which are affected by invasive plants, eroding stream banks and intensive recreational use. Stewardship is a satisfying and rewarding way to experience the natural habitat while improving the ecological health of these areas.

To get involved join one of public stewardship and restoration activities happening throughout the City, including free interpretive walks, workshops and a regular stewardship events.

Volunteering for Events

Everyone is welcome and no experience is necessary. Training will be provided for each event activity. 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.  Please consider walking, cycling, taking public transit, or carpooling with friends to the event.
