The Jericho Stewardship Group is a collection of interested residents, naturalists, students, non-profit groups and others working together with parks board staff to restore and enhance natural habitat at Jericho Park in the City of Vancouver. Among our activities: wildlife inventory and monitoring, invasive plant management, native species planting and more.
If you would like to get involved, join us. It’s now tree planting season; upcoming workparties to put strong roots into the ground are currently scheduled as follows:
- Sunday Oct 16
- Sunday Nov 20. There will be special guests from the Park Board, CN and Tree Canada for a brief acknowledgement of the Park Board’s funding from CN EcoConnexions From the Ground Up program
- Sunday Dec 11
We meet at 9 a.m. at the wooden bridge over the pond at Jericho Beach Park and will move out from there to work throughout the park. Dress for the elements and know you’re likely to get dirty. We’ll provide tools and a sense of purpose. We’ll also have snacks on hand, but it’s a good idea to bring some water with you.
