Fraser Valley Conservancy hosts stewardship workshop in Abbotsford

Event takes place Saturday, Jan. 25 at Exhibition Park

The Fraser Valley Conservancy (FVC) holds a workshop in Abbotsford on Saturday, Jan. 25.

The workshop, titled Stewardship 101, is part of the Nature Stewardship School, a series of public workshops where the community can learn a variety of skills to help local wildlife.

The session in Abbotsford takes place at Exhibition Park from 1:30 to 4 p.m.

Participants will learn the basics of how to identify local wildlife habitat, the species that live there, and top stewardship tips. They are encouraged to bring any nature-related questions for discussion.

“The popularity of our Stewardship 101 class held in Mission in December showed that many people are interested in learning how they can help nature,” said Joanne Neilson of the FVC.

“Not only did the class fill up quickly, but the feedback received was highly positive. Participants really enjoyed the enthusiastic and knowledgeable speakers while learning practical ways to care for the environment.”

An additional Stewardship 101 workshop is happening in Chilliwack on Feb. 29. Other future workshops will include gardening for pollinators, lawn alternatives, and healthy habitats for amphibians.

The FVC works to promote the protection and conservation of ecologically significant habitats throughout the Fraser Valley. Financial support for the Stewardship 101 workshop is provided by Vancity.

Admission for the Abbotsford workshop is $5. Visit to register or for more information.
