Nature Stewardship School: Stewardship Slipups

Aug 27, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm


Nature Stewardship School is back in session! Join the FVC’s Tamsin Baker and Aleesha Switzer for an in-person workshop event at the Abbotsford University of the Fraser Valley campus.

Workshop Topic

Have you ever worried that your stewardship activities may be doing more harm than good?

We polled environmental professionals across the Fraser Valley and our FVC staff to find the top five most common mistakes people make when they are trying to care for nature. This workshop focuses on identifying how these five “stewardship slipups” show up across a wide variety of common practices including:

  • installing boxes for birds, bats, or owls
  • managing streamside or pondside habitat
  • moving, relocating, or rescuing wildlife
  • finding information online
  • and many more!

This is your opportunity to identify stewardship slipups and learn what to do instead to become a champion for nature in the Fraser Valley.
