What we're about

Meatless Meetup is run by a group of volunteer hosts who believe it to be of critical environmental importance that we drastically reduce our meat and dairy consumption.

Food at our events is vegan but we're not a vegan club. Anyone interested in lowering their carbon footprint by eating more plant based meals, even if never planning to go vegan, is welcome.

We require members to use a real first name and face photo so we can recognize each other at events. There are lots of opportunities to volunteer with us, from collecting cash at restaurants to helping out at potlucks. If you want to meet more people at events, get in touch.

N.B. As your volunteer hosts can be asked to pay for no show diners, we ask that you be willing to pay for your meal at our events if you cancel without adequate notice.

Light House Park hike with picnic lunch

Needs a location

Join us for a hike at Lighthouse Park. This will be a loop trail. Lighthouse Park is one of Greater Vancouver's most beautiful parks located along the shores of West Vancouver. The park boasts some of the largest Douglas Fir trees in Greater Vancouver as well as breathtaking views of the water. This hike is accessible by transit.

Transit:
Take bus #250 from Downtown Vancouver and continue across the Lions Gate Bridge, past Park Royal Shopping Center, and through Dundarave Village. The bus stop for Lighthouse Park is just past Beacon Lane on Marine Drive. From the bus stop its just a short walk down Beacon Lane to the park entrance.

Note: The end time is approximate due to pace of hike and how much time is spent at the falls. So please plan accordingly.

Parking:
Is free but it is limited. If the parking is full there is parking along the street. Please allow for sufficient time to park and meet at the trailhead.
We will meet at the trailhead

Hike:
Light House Park Trail
Elevation: Minimal
Difficulty: Easy
Distance: 6 KM aproximately
Please wear hiking shoes or runners.
If you don't hike or are not very active this is not the hike for you. We will be hiking at a moderate pace.
IMPORTANT NOTES: • All participants who RSVP for this event are entirely responsible for their own safety. • Please come prepared for the season and the hike – wear sufficient layers, boots or runners, jacket, snacks and water etc .• If you RSVP yes and then must cancel, please update your RSVP immediately, so we don't wait for you.
There are a variety of trails through the park that take you past old growth Western Red Cedar and Douglas Fir trees. The trails are all fairly easy with only a few having a short hill to ascend or descend. We will look at the park map at the trailhead and plan our route so that we circle through the park and end at the lighthouse. (That's the goal :-))

Vegan Lunch:
Bring a Vegan Lunch. This is a vegan event so we ask that the food you bring is vegan. If you need suggestions post something in the comments. We will eat at the picnic tables located near the Lighthouse.

Will be rescheduled if it rains

Please arrive between 6:15 and 7pm as we cannot guarantee to reserve very late or no show guests' meals.

We're aiming to generate as little waste as possible, so please bring your own plate, utensils, napkin, and water bottle. If you do not have them, you can purchase a plate/container, utensils, and napkin from us for $2 and a drink separately from the concession stand until 7pm.

No, we're not meeting in the parking lot--that's just the most convenient landmark. If you are taking a bus down 4th Ave, get off at Wallace St. It's a short walk down to that parking lot. The parking lot is paid, but there is free street parking in the area.

We will be on the grass that is beside the parking lot, not on the sand. Please bring a blanket or chair to sit on. You could also bring a guitar, frisbee, swimsuit, or a deck of cards to play with other guests.

Volunteers will be needed for greeting, food serving, and clean up. Please message Alison if you would like to volunteer. Volunteers get their food first!

NB.

  • RSVPing here is your commitment to pay the cost of your dinner if you cancel less than 51 hours (2 days) before the event, as your volunteer hosts are paying TERA V prior to the event.
