What we're about

We’re an enthusiastic hands-on group active throughout Metro Vancouver who gets together to remove invasive plants and replant native vegetation in our Regional Parks. Have fun, help the environment, make new friends, get some fresh air and exercise in the great outdoors!

We have a lot of parkland and we need help with it! With 22 regional parks, 1 inter-regional park, 2 ecological conservancy areas, 3 regional reserves and 5 greenways, Metro Vancouver Regional Parks provides a vital habitat for countless plant and wildlife species. All told we manage and protect a whopping 14,436 hectares of awe-inspiring parklands; nearly 10 million people visit them each year. Help us maintain these natural habitats for current and future generations to enjoy.

Everyone is welcome. No experience necessary.
