We invite you to join us for a DRBIPA information session at the Derby Reach Heritage Area and a guided ecology walk through Derby Reach Regional Park.

This event is for anyone interested in getting involved with DRBIPA as a volunteer, member, or board member; or for those who have never heard of us before.

Open to the first 20 registrants, please register by May 15th by emailing outreach@nulldrbipa.org to save your seat.

We kick off the event at 1pm with a 15-minute presentation about the work DRBIPA does in the Derby Reach and Brae Island Regional Parks, including the launch of our new Park Ambassador volunteer initiative, followed by 45 minutes for questions, refreshments and mingling. Plus a couple door prizes will be drawn, too!

We will then head out on a 2-hour guided ecology walk with Lee Beavington, biologist, award-winning author, and faculty leader for KPU’s Amazon Field School. He also served as co-curator for the current Wild Things: The Power of Nature in Our Lives exhibition at the Museum of Vancouver. More about Lee at www.leebeavington.com.

Lee will lead us through one of the most spectacular ecosystems on the planet: our temperate rain forest. Discover the hidden wonders of our forests and some of the world’s largest tree species.

Please meet at the Derby Reach Heritage Area parking lot on Allard Crescent, the event will begin right at 1pm. Email Roxci at outreach@nulldrbipa.org to register and save your seat. RSVP required.
