Crab Team

This spring, in collaboration with Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), we’re recruiting local volunteers to help us survey for European Green Crab in Howe Sound, which will involve setting multiple crab traps at pre-determined sites, and then returning 24 hours later to collect & record data.

Check out the details and sign up:

Community Weed Pulls

Community weed pulls run during the summer season at various locations throughout the corridor. Everyone is invited to come out and help us tackle specific invasive species infestations. It is a great way to get some exercise, get to know your neighbours, and help the environment at the same time.

All tools, gloves, and snacks are provided. Just bring yourself and your energy! Upcoming events are posted below. Sign up for our newsletter to stay current on all events.
