Outreach Events

The Initiative has a presence at public events throughout the year, and we can always use volunteer help to staff our display booth. Please contact the Bowker Creek Initiative Coordinator if you'd like to join our fun and creative group of outreach volunteers.

Restoration Activities

Volunteer help is critically important for carrying out and maintaining any restoration initiative in the watershed. Volunteers have helped with the planting and maintenance of the native plant restoration project at St. Patrick’s Elementary School, as well as the bioengineering and are currently activity developing and maintaining the native plant garden project at Monteith Street in Oak Bay. If you wish to be informed of opportunities to participate in projects like this, please contact the Bowker Creek Initiative Coordinator and ask to be put on the Bowker Listserv.
