Periwinkle Pull & Hatchery Tour at Kanaka Creek Regional Park

Spend the morning restoring habitat at lovely Kanaka Creek Regional Park.  Help us remove periwinkle along this sensitive waterway - home to a diversity of plants and animals such as salmon, bears, dippers, and the rare tailed frog.  In addition to the pull, we'll also be touring the newly constructed Bell-Irving Fish Hatchery to learn what the folks there are doing to conserve and enhance this precious watershed.

This event will run rain or shine, so come well-dressed for the weather.  Sturdy footwear is highly recommended.  Metro Vancouver will provide all necessary equipment (i.e. gloves, clippers, and rakes) as well as refreshments (water, juice, cookies). 

We'll be joined by members of the Lower Mainland Green Team (LMGT) and the Kanaka Education & Environmental Partnership Society (KEEPS).  This will be a great opportunity to meet like-minded folks who care about the environment. 

We'll be meeting in front of Bell Irving Hatchery (11450 - 256th Street) at 9:45 am.  From there we will walk to the work site.  Please do not be late.  Parking is limited, so carpool if possible.

    Thank you everyone for helping with Sunday's invasive pull at Kanaka Creek Regional Park. Together, we removed over 2000 lbs of periwinkle! Great work everyone. I would also like to extend my thanks to Ross Davies of KEEPS for the wonderful tour of Bell Irving Hatchery.
