Water Chemistry Monitoring - Streams and Bog
Join us to help learn more about how you can monitor and care for water quality in the aquatic ecosystems of our park. Pacific Spirit Regional Park has several salmon-bearing streams and a rare bog ecosystem, both which must maintain their precious water chemistry and quality to support their flora and fauna. This event will be split into two different sessions: Bog water chemistry monitoring in the morning and stream water chemistry monitoring in the afternoon. The Bog session will be from 10:00am - 12:00pm at Camosun Bog (Camosun Bog Loop Trail: https://goo.gl/maps/xvKVZYqN4b220) The Stream session will be from 1:00pm - 3:00pm at Spanish Banks (NW Marine Dr at the base of Spanish Banks Creek: https://goo.gl/maps/Yvqau1nfMSJ2) Feel free to come to just one or both of the sessions. We will be training participants on how to monitor water quality and chemistry in the different systems. Join us to learn how you can care for your local aquatic ecosystems!

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.
