Pollinator Habitat and Rain Gardens
Coming soon in fall 2017, Wildcoast Ecological Society will be partnering with Stream of Dreams, as well as several schools throughout the Lower Mainland to create native pollinator gardens within the school's boundaries. These projects will help to provide habitat for our native bird populations, encourage pollinator species and help to educate children about the connections we have with our natural environments. We will also be incorporating specialized characteristics to aid in the infiltration of runoff and stormwater at these sites.
Stream Side Restoration
Wildcoast Ecological Society has partnered with Echo Ecological Enterprises LTD, a Vancouver based consulting company, to help restore riparian and estuary habitat in North Vancouver. Many of our local creeks and rivers have been severely impacted from years of urban development and they need help to restore them to a more functional state. Wildcoast Ecological hosts monthly volunteer events that focus on restoration efforts to improve these impacted creeks.
Art & Science Stewardship
In collaboration with the Coho Society, Wildcoast Ecological aids in presenting Art and Science workshops for grade 5-6 students with a goal of educating children in the Lower Mainland about their local creeks. Connecting art and science allows children to think about their natural environments from different perspectives and see both the unique beauty, as well as the intricate connections that occur in the natural world.
