Politicians Tour Byrne Creek

This morning Byrne Creek Streamkeepers took our Member of Parliament, Peter Julian, Burnaby City Councillor Pietro Calendino, Burnaby Parks Commission Chair Paul McDonell and commissioner Alex Ng, and Burnaby RCMP S/Sgt. John Buis on a tour of the creek.

We discussed issues in the watershed, what streamkeepers do, SEA streets and rain gardens, and environmental and social issues. It was great to see them all come out and share their valuable time. Such dialogue is invaluable.

Never ones to waste valuable time, some streamkeepers combined the event with taking another sample in our ongoing late winter/early spring bug survey, while others pulled invasive plant species in the spawning habitat and picked up litter along Southridge Dr.
