Jericho Stewardship Group – Monthly Volunteer Work Parties
The Jericho Stewardship Group is a registered non-profit organization comprising residents, students, naturalists and other non-profit groups, that works with the Vancouver Park Board to restore and encourage the natural habitat of Jericho Beach Park.
Our main activities include:
- removal of existing non-native shrub and tree species
- planting of new native trees and shrubs
- maintenance of newly planted areas
We also give walks and talks in the Park, do an annual release of mason bees in the spring and monitor and record some of the plant and animal species.
MONTHLY STEWARDSHIP EVENTS
If you would like to get involved, then join us on the second Sunday of every month (weather and holidays permitting).
Upcoming work parties are currently scheduled for the following dates:
- Sunday April 8
Work parties are from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon and we meet at the wooden bridge over the pond.
Come dressed for the elements and know you’re likely to get dirty! We’ll provide tools, cinnamon buns and a sense of purpose – we hope to see you there!
