Event Description

Three local non-profit groups – Little Mountain Neighbourhood House, Village Vancouver, the False Creek Watershed Society and the Greenest City Action Plan to create a series of 10 “Earth Walks”.

We live in the city of Vancouver with almost a million residents. We are blessed to be surrounded by mountains, forests, oceans and rivers. But how well do we know the nature in our own backyard? The natural world is present everywhere – from the gardens of Kitsilano to the Lost Streams of False Creek to the Mighty Fraser River and even at the local shopping centre!

Please join us for this exciting series of free walks this summer and fall. The leaders are amazingly knowledgeable in their specialty. So come along to listen to their words, connect with the land and ask lots of questions!

Please register for the event(s) of your choice online here: http://www.falsecreekwatershed.org/events.html. We will add more information as it becomes available.

1) July 21 “Bee Walk” through Kitsilano with Mary Bennett. From bee-friendly gardens to hives to eco-art; how bees fare in the big city. 1:00 – 3:00

A good crowd and we had a lot of fun! Thanks for organizing this, Celia. I met some interesting people. About 15 showed up - some who registered cancelled and several hadn't registered and just showed up. We'll have some photos posted at http://communityarts.ning.com
