Habitat Restoration

The Nature Conservancy of Canada is excited to host a day of hands-on stewardship work at the beautiful Centre Creek Conservation Area. Your help in removing invasive blackberry bushes and clearing out urban debris will contribute to the improving health of this urban nature area. As an added bonus, the blackberries should be ripe and ready to eat!

If you’d like to carpool to the event, please click here, to add your car or join a ride going to the event. There is also a wait list feature if there isn’t a ride there yet that works for you. Happy carpooling.

More Information

About Centre Creek Conservation Area, Surrey

Located in the north end of the City of  Surrey, this small conservation area protects a portion of Centre Creek and other small tributaries, which meander through the dense coastal western hemlock forest and out into the Lower Fraser River. Together with the neighbouring protected areas, including the Surrey Bend Regional Park, the Centre Creek property plays an important role in the larger wetland ecosystem complex, which provides rearing habitat for Pacific salmon, trout, and other native fish species.

What you will be doing

Garbage and invasive species tend to be a common problem for conservation areas located in urban and residential areas. We will work together to remove invasive Himalayan blackberry and rubbish from Centre Creek Conservation Area in Surrey, BC.

Why you will love it

Volunteering at Centre Creek is a great opportunity to spend time outdoors next to an urban stream and under the canopy of a coastal western hemlock forest while contributing to the stewardship of Centre Creek. There is also a good chance the blackberries will be ripe and ready to eat!
