Partnership creates natural team for youth interested in environmental issues

A four-group partnership between local park groups is working to create a natural area preservation team for youth interested in environmental issues.

Sunnyside Acres Heritage Society, the White Rock and Surrey Naturalists, Green Timbers Heritage Society and the City of Surrey’s Urban Forestry and Evironmental Programs are joining together for Surrey’s Natural Areas Partnership (SNAP).

The collaborative effort works on a number of initiatives including habitat restoration, environmental outreach and education regarding the benefits of natural areas, boulevard trees and environmental stewardship.

Teams of post-secondary students are involved in the group’s work, with two in charge of outreach, who go door-to-door canvassing, attend events and host nature activities.

Members of SNAP can regularly be found hosting at stalls at the InSeason Market in Port Kells.
