Ecoblitz: Iona Beach Dune Restoration

Iona Beach Regional Park sits along one of the major migration routes for birds along the Pacific Coast, making it a valuable stopover site for thousands of birds every year. It also is home to one of the most rare and threatened habitats in the Lower Mainland – coastal sand dune ecosystems! In the last year alone almost 8 acres of Scotch Broom – a highly invasive plant in the dunes – have been removed from the park. Please help us plant native grasses and shrubs in this beautiful park and continue the good work already happening!  We'll be joined by 25+ volunteers from WildResearch and the Northwest Wildlife Preservation Society.

We’ll be meeting at the main parking lot of Iona Beach Regional Park, near the bathrooms and then go for a quick walk over to the restoration site. Gloves, tools, snacks and refreshments will all be provided, just wear sturdy footwear and clothes you don’t mind getting a little bit dirty.

    Haha - I know! We'll definitely be looking into to ways to make this better every year!

    There are so many great activities going on during "Ecoblitz". Would you please consider splitting them up a bit, next year, so that I could attend more than one?
