Event Details

Meet in front (north side) of the 29th Avenue Skytrain Station where the buses pull in to unload at 1:00 PM. Slocan Park is behind the station. Come and experience Vancouver's seven block long Renfrew Ravine, home to Vancouver's only deep ravine and flowing creek, set in a natural wilderness that amazinly loes mostl forgotten between 22nd and 29th Avenue. We will see many native plants and some rare bedrock sandstone. There is a newly restored portion of the creek and a site where a beaver recently built a dam with its baby by its side. Recently salmon have returned to Still Creek.

The walk will end at the Renfrew Skytrain Station.

This walk will be led by Vancouver-born historian Bruce Macdonald, authour of "Vancouver - a Visual History" Bruce grew up in the city but much of his childhood was spent in the local woods appreciating nature. Each participant will receive a four page handout with some local history and detailed colour maps.

By donation.
