The March 11 event will be our last stewardship event in Jim Lorimer Park. Evergreen thanks all the volunteers, City of Burnaby and Metro Vancouver Parks whom have made this program successful.

Take action to improve the health of the local watershed! Join Evergreen for citizen-science training and other activities taking place every month at Jim Lorimer Park in Burnaby. By helping us monitor water quality, as well as by removing invasive species and replacing them with native plants, you can help ensure the park's Chub Creek waterway remains a vital and functioning part of the urban ecosystem. 

Who is a Citizen Scientist? That’s you! Become part of a growing network of active community members, and:

•  Learn about the local ecology of your watershed
•  Help manage invasive species in the local ecosystem
•  Plant native plants
•  Monitor water quality in Chub Creek

Meeting Place: At Gilmore Ave and railway tracks

What to bring: Weather-appropriate clothing, closed toe shoes and a water bottle or coffee mug.

What we’ll provide: Training, tools, gloves and snacks

Commitment: 3 hours per event
