It has been proposed to put a seawall or other invasive structure on the last remaining natural foreshore in Vancouver between Kitsilano and Jericho Beaches. This area is a repository for life. When you put through a walkway you damage that fragile ecosystem. Equally important it is a space where peopee can go to be in nature and have a quiet and reflective experience.
I've organized a walkabout of our precious natural foreshore led by experts. This walkabout will be held on Saturday, August 4 at 1:30 - 3:30pm. We will meet at the stairway to the foreshore in the park at Trafalgar St & Point Grey Rd. (2 blks east of Macdonald).
So far we have a botanist, a geologist and a marine biologist leading us. Other experts may well come also. The purpose of this walk would be to help inform all of us about the consequences to the foreshore of imposing a structure along this area.
It should be a wonderful learning experience and a fun event. Hope you can make it.
