Ecological Restoration Workshops

Saturday, October 12, 2019 10:00am - 12:00pm
Mt. Pleasant Community Center

What role can citizens take in caring for public lands? In this 6 week program, we’ll tour 4 local sites where citizen groups are restoring habitats for birds, fish, and other animals. The outdoor sessions will include a tour of the site and an opportunity for hands-on work. The hands-on work is optional; however, efforts will be made to have tasks available for all fitness levels. 
In the two indoor sessions at Mt. Pleasant Community Centre, we’ll learn about the City of Vancouver’s “Greenest City Action Plan,” the Vancouver Park Board’s “Biodiversity Plan,” and “The Wisdom of Plants and Indigenous Stewardship” with educator and herbalist Lori Snyder.
