JSG has monthly workparty events to remove invasive plants and plant native species, depending on the season. Volunteers are the foundation of JSG and how we perform our work. We welcome volunteers from all walks of life to our monthly workparties and to help with other supporting tasks.
By volunteering with JSG, you can:
- Explore your passion for nature and the environment
- Learn about native and invasive plants and why invasives are a problem
- Make a difference and give back to your community
- Get outside, be active and have fun working with others
If you want to join our dynamic team of volunteers, come to our next workparty (usually the second Sunday). Or join our email list and we’ll send you a reminder a few days before each workparty.
Sunday October 20
We meet at 9:30 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 working conditions – you’ll probably get dirty and have fun doing so. 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.
Special Planting Event:
Sunday September 29
A part of Vancouver’s Park Stewardship Month. We’ll be planting shrubs and trees in areas that have already been cleared. Our aim is to enhance the park as habitat for birds, pollinators, and amphibians (and for humans wanting a peaceful, beautiful place to walk and rest).
