Facilitating the protection and restoration of species and ecosystems at risk on BC’s South Coast
The forests, fields, streams and wetlands of Tri-Cities are home to many fascinating plants and animals, many of which are considered to be at risk. This workshop will introduce some of these rare and interesting local species. Learn the best identification tips as well as ways to help conserve these species. Join Pamela Zevit RPBio, Special Projects Coordinator of the South Coast Conservation Program, and Dr. Terry McIntosh, Botanist, for this fun, interactive and informative nature event. Participants will meet indoors at the Gathering Place in Port Coquitlam for a presentation to learn about the various species and their ecology, followed by an interactive walk along the Coquitlam River at nearby Lions Park.
Event will be rain or shine. Please bring sturdy walking shoes.
Refreshments will be available.
Cost is free, but registration is appreciated.
