Details

Notes:

Nemat, Ryan and Victor please arrive at 9.15am as Metro Vancouver Parks will give you some leadership instruction. This event is on rain or shine The Problem

Capilano Regional park does not have a regular stewardship group looking after it, ivy is rampant in parts of it and it is spreading fast. Let's get in there and pull out that ivy!

Meeting Spot

We are meeting in the District of North Vancouver at the end of Sandown Place. Go North on Capilano Rd from Marine Drive, turn left on Fullerton Avenue (there is parking on Fullerton for those driving) and then right on Sandown Pl all the way to the end to the cul de sac:
