Event Description

Meet at St. George's and Kingsway at Robson Park by the Storyteller's Cob Bench.

Greta will walk north from there along St. George's to describe where the creek went and what the plans are for the daylighting; bringing the creek back to life. At 7th and St. George's she will stop to discuss the new mural!

This mural was created by the St. George Street Rainway group. It was created to bring awareness about the proposed daylighting of St. George's Creek.

Greta Borick Cunningham is a keen naturalist and very interested in the local ecosystems. She just completed a Diploma at BCIT in Sustainable Resource Management. She lives on St. George Street, is part of the Rainway group and also is the Chair of the False Creek Watershed Society. She is presently working at Alouette River Management Society in Maple Ridge.
