Discover the Green Heart of Chilliwack

RSVP now

The Browne Creek Wetlands are a gem in our community - Fisheries + Oceans (DFO) staff proudly called it the "Stanley Park of Chilliwack". Combined with the Great Blue Heron Nature Preserve, Peach Creek Rotary Trail, and the Vedder Rotary Trail on the north side of the river (and soon a bridge to link these), we think this natural loop deserves recognition as the green heart of Chilliwack.

A two-part Event at the Wetlands on Saturday MAY 6:
(hosted on unceded Stó:lo territory)

11:00 - we will be hosting a guided walk through the wetlands trail system, with Elder Eddie Gardner welcoming and providing a First Nations perspective, Ian Stephen of The WaterWealth Project providing input on water protection issues, and Victor Froese providing his expertise on the actual workings and development of the Wetlands. 

12:00 - we will host a BBQ lunch for the public - if you can't make it for the walk, you can still join us for lunch. There will be an address from Wayne Froese (candidate for BC Greens) about his vision for Chilliwack in seeing the further expansion of green spaces, more habitat enhancement, and greater opportunities in eco-tourism. The Wetlands are a model for all of these. 

Come and experience it for yourself!
