Think access to clean water is a faith issue? Want to meet christians with a passion for environmental justice? Join Salal + Cedar Community on a Metro Vancouver Watershed Tour.
12:30-3:30pm. Towering old growth trees, a historic water intake tower, the dam and breathtaking views of our largest reservoir are sure to inspire awe on this tour of the Coquitlam Watershed. After a visit to 4-5 locations, you’ll have a whole new appreciation for these protected lands and the source of your tap water. Through short presentations, you’ll learn about the history of the region’s water supply, water quality, treatment, how it gets to your home and the role of a healthy ecosystem in maintaining exceptional water quality. Please be aware that this tour includes a significant amount of driving on gravel roads and some short walks on uneven ground.
3:30-4:30pm. If you can’t make the bus tour because of time or accessibility join us afterward in Glen Park for a conversation about Salal and Cedar, how we can support one another in seeking environmental justice and what this new environmental ministry could be.
The tour is free but pre-registration is required. The tour is for participants 15 and older, travel is by school bus and includes a significant amount of driving on gravel roads and some short walks on uneven ground. There are no restrooms in Glen Park and pit toilets at all stops on the tour.
