Since 2003, the City Park Stewards, a volunteer program in partnership with the City of North Vancouver, has worked to protect and restore nature in the city. The program has played a key role in advancing the City’s environmental restoration and stewardship goals, while also providing opportunities for volunteers to connect with the City’s natural areas, and with other community residents.

These dedicated community volunteers worked to restore the City's natural areas from the degradation caused by increased recreational use, variable stream flows and bank erosion, illegal dumping, and threats to biodiversity like invasive plants.

Stewardship is a rewarding way to experience urban nature and contribute to the ecological health of our cities. In 2019 alone, the City Park Stewards project engaged over 20 community partners and 924 residents from across North Vancouver. This resulted in the removal of 400 cubic meters of invasive species, and the installation of 3,346 native trees and shrubs in nine City of North Vancouver parks.

This City Park Stewards is now managed by the City of North Vancouver.
