Jane’s Walk Abbotsford: TAKING THE PULSE OF STONEY CREEK

WALK LEADER: Steven Marsh

WHEN: Sunday, May 5th, 2019

TIME: 11:30am-12:45pm

DURATION: 1.25 hours

MEETING LOCATION:
Bateman Park parking lot beside off leash dog park, Bateman Road

WALK DESCRIPTION:
“The topic of the walk is the health and threats to our local water courses. We will explore Stoney Creek which is located beside an off leash dog park. Our local creeks are of great importance in providing habitat for wild creatures in particular to spawning salmon in the fall. They provide an opportunity for residents to explore nature. To improve our city our local population need to be educated on the fragile state of our watercourses and their importance for providing clean water and habitat.”

ROUTES + STOPS:
“We will begin our walk at the edge of the parking lot and proceed to the small bridge to the dog park. We will continue along the trail beside the creek. Stops will include the bridge, the dog park and interesting locations along the creek to point out threats to the stream and methods that the city is working on to improve the health of Stoney Creek. Depending on the size of the group that joins us I may divide the group into two with myself talking to one half and Donovan Toews (my research student) talking with the other half. We will loop back to the parking lot where I can answer any other questions that participants may have. I want to inspire the public to understand our local streams, the threats posed by our growing population and how we can help.”

ACCESSIBILITY:
Walk will be along dirt/gravel paths with people and dog traffic

PARTICIPATION:
Yes, the walk is family friendly, children and seniors are welcome.
