Take action to improve the health of your local watershed! Join Evergreen for citizen-science training and other activities taking place every month at Lower Hume Park in New Westminster.

•  Learn about the local ecology of your watershed
•  Help manage invasive species in the local ecosystem
•  Plant native plants
•  Monitor water quality in the Brunette River
