Rewilding Still Creek


Want to help create more habitat for wildlife in the city? Looking for new experience for your resume? In this program, you’ll learn about ecological restoration and work with a team of youth to restore habitat for salmon and birds along Still Creek in Renfrew Ravine, one of Vancouver’s only remaining urban streams. You’ll gain skills that can help you get a job, including how to remove invasive species, plant native species, and identify plants and wildlife. You’ll also connect with Indigenous Knowledge Keepers, meet new friends, grow your leadership skills, and earn money while you’re at it!

Lunch is provided & bus tickets are available upon request.
