Earth Day celebrations in Vancouver parks

April 22 2014

Renfrew Ravine Park

Celebrate Earth Day with activities in several parks across the city.

Walk, bike, or take public transit to the events.

Oak Park community cleanup

Everett Crowley Park tree-planting, geocaching, and family fun

Saturday, April 26, 11:00am – 3:00pm

Vancouver’s longest running Earth Day celebration takes place at Everett Crowley Park. There will be a wide range of free family-oriented fun. This annual event is organized by local residents and supported by local businesses and the City of Vancouver. Help plant more than 1,000 native trees and shrubs supplied by the Vancouver Park Board.

Renfrew Ravine Park invasive-plant removal

Sunday, April 27, 10:00am – 12:30pm

Join Evergreen BC volunteers to remove invasive plants, plant native species, and sample water quality (held the last Sunday of each month). Meet at 29th Avenue, just east of the German-Canadian Gardens, across from the 29th Avenue SkyTrain Station.

Stanley Park educational walk and habitat restoration

Sunday, April 27, 10:00am – 12:00 noon

Stanley Park is a world-famous urban park, but it isn’t easy to be a healthy island ecosystem in the heart of a growing city. Join Stanley Park Ecology Society for an easy morning walk to learn about habitat restoration in the park: reconstructing islands and renewing wetlands in Lost Lagoon, removing invasive plants, creating anti-erosion nets made from crocheted ivy, building boardwalks, and coexisting with beavers.

Sunday, April 27, 12:30pm – 3:00pm

Help Stanley Park Ecology Society celebrate Earth Day by removing invasive plant species and planting native flora. Flex your muscles while learning how habitat restoration is important for the animals that call Stanley Park home. Registration is required.

Stanley Park Ecology Society

The Stanley Park Ecology Society connects thousands of people with nature each year through school and public programs.
