Metro Vancouver offering guided walk through restricted wetlands

Oct. 2 outing presented in partnership with Langley Environmental Partners Society is free and open to anyone 14 and up

Residents and visitors are invited to enjoy a guided walk through West Creek Wetlands, a regional park reserve normally off limits to the public, and home to an incredible variety of plants and wildlife.

The  Wonderful Wetlands Tour will take place at Glen Valley Regional Park on Sunday, Oct. 2, from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The wetland is described on the Glen Valley Watershed website as  “66-hectares of natural terrain speckled with a lake, wetlands, and creeks.”

As one of the largest areas of wildlife habitat in the municipality, nearly 170 animals use the natural landscape, including up to 22 endangered or threatened species, the website explains.

The site is also an important temporary home for migrating waterfowl and songbirds.

The walk is open to participants aged 14 and over.

It is free, but registration is required.

Register using barcode 6688 at metrovancouveronline.org or call 604-432-6359, from Monday to Friday between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

The walk is presented in partnership with the Langley Environmental Partners Society.
