Bertrand Creek needs help

BWET is always looking for volunteers to join and participate in this program and offers great opportunity for those who want to contribute

The Bertrand Watershed Education Team (BWET), an environmental conservation program run by the Langley Environmental Partners Society (LEPS), has achieved a great success in conserving salmon habitat and restoring of stream banks of Bertrand Creek in the Aldergrove area.

The BWET team is playing an important role to enhance the ecological health of the local stream ecosystems by planting native shrubs and trees and removing invasive plant species. Involvement of local youth, school children, and watershed stewards have contributed to making this program a great success by participating in outdoor restoration activities, meetings and through sharing ideas and knowledge.

BWET is always looking for volunteers to join and participate in this program and offers a great opportunity for those who want to contribute to environmental protection and biodiversity conservation of their local ecosystems. For volunteering and to get more information about BWET, please contact Carly at conservation@leps.bc.ca or call 604-546-0347.

This project is supported by the Government of Canada, Habitat Conservation Trust Fund, and the Vancouver Foundation.
