We are pleased to announce our latest nature-focused educational initiative for the Fraser Valley. Our Nature Stewardship School consists of community workshops where you can learn a variety of skills to help local wildlife. Whether you live in an urban or rural setting, in an apartment, house, or farm — everyone is welcome.
These workshops will cover a wide range of topics. You can choose to attend any one workshop to learn about an interesting topic, or you can participate in the whole series. No previous knowledge is required. These workshops are geared towards adults.
Stewardship 101, the first workshop in the series, will introduce the concept of caring for nature in the Fraser Valley. You will learn tips on how to identify wildlife and the type of habitat where they live. We will explore some of the challenges they face for survival, and things you can do to help them.
Future workshops will include gardening with native plants, how to create habitat where you live, topics on specific wildlife types such as pollinators and amphibians, to name a few. We encourage you to bring any questions you may have and bring any photos of critters or habitat that you would like to know more about.
Stewardship 101 workshops are planned for Mission (December), Abbotsford (January), and Chilliwack (February).
