Volunteering

The Lighthouse Park Preservation Society is run entirely by volunteers. Since its beginnings in 1998, we have initiated many volunteer events. A monthly bird count on the first Sunday of each month records the birds seen or heard in Lighthouse Park. The statistics are then entered on E Bird Canada.

In partnership with the West Vancouver Parks Department, we also hold 10-12 weed removal events each year in Lighthouse Park and some of the five smaller parks in the neighbourhood. The society spent several Fall seasons restoring Lighthouse Park's main trail, Beacon Trail, with native plant species, and we are currently restoring part of Caulfeild Park to native plants.  We have been focusing on The Dale Park since the fall of 2014 and we have another round of planting this fall.

Our work parties welcome people of all ages. We provide drinks, a light snack, hand tools, and a guaranteed opportunity to get dirty, have fun, and meet some very nice people!  Come and join us for an hour or stay for three!  Please wear old clothes, sturdy shoes or hiking boots, and work gloves. 

For this year's volunteer events, check out our latest newsletter or email us
