Come plant some trees with us!
As Northwest Wildlife Preservation Society continues to grow as an organization, so to do we want the natural environments that surround us to. So, in honour of our 25th anniversary, we will be planting 2500 trees and shrubs generously donated by Metro Vancouver and we would love for you to come out, lend a hand and share in this extraordinary milestone with us as we couldn't have done it without all of you!
Come by the Serpentine Fields entrance at Tynehead Regional Park in Surrey between 10am - 2pm for a fun-filled day of celebration, group tree planting, wildlife education displays, a delicious barbeque lunch and more! Everything at this family event is free of charge so come one, come all, even Fido too! This is a pet-friendly event so feel free to bring your dogs and let them roam free in the adjacent off-leash dog area.
A donation page has been set up for the symbolic adoption of each tree with all proceeds going directly to bring free environmental education programs to inner-city schoolchildren throughout BC. If you're able, please give generously at http://www.canadahelps.org/GivingPages/GivingPage.aspx?gpID=20271
