Swan Creek rehab info session

The volunteer stewards who meticulously care for Swan Creek host an information session on Monday (Oct. 28)

The volunteer stewards who meticulously care for Swan Creek host an information session on Monday (Oct. 28) to share their long-term vision of their restoration action plan.

The workshop runs from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Lam Room at Pearkes Recreation Centre (3100 Tillicum Rd.).

The event precedes an on-site session at Swan Creek Park, where the public will have an opportunity to see what’s been going on in the natural environment and learn more about the creek in their own backyard.

On Sunday, Nov. 3, from 1 to 3 p.m., stewards from Friends of Swan Creek Watershed will be on hand to share information on the health of the creek, animals that call the watershed home, and invasive species removal.

Swan Creek Park is a large park that follows Swan Creek east-west along McKenzie Avenue between the Pat Bay Highway and Marigold Road.
