Evergreen – City Park Stewards

City Park Stewards is a volunteer stewardship and environmental education program developed by Evergreen and the City of North Vancouver. The purpose of the program is to restore the ecological and habitat value of the City's urban wild spaces, while increasing environmental awareness and engaging community members in using these valuable parks. Our aim is to build a diverse and skilled 'corps' of volunteers who are dedicated to caring for the City's park spaces year over year. This includes monthly volunteer stewardship events where participants remove invasive plant species and install native trees and shrubs - everyone is welcome. We have some volunteers who have been working in these parks for over a decade, but we also strive to engage new people each time, including youth and new Canadians in particular. In addition to these monthly events, we run 22 additional events a year, including park stewardship and animation workshops with local schools, and interpretive walks of the parks with the North Shore Multicultural Society. Overall, we aim to reach at least 600 volunteers and participants a year through our events.
