Fall Parksfest is our way of saying “thank you” to the many people who contribute to regional parks. Metro Vancouver Regional Parks hosts this fall event in recognition of the great work of park associations, their members and their volunteers. We’re also pleased to welcome our numerous other partners and active volunteers who have an established relationship with Metro Vancouver. We hope this event will strengthen the commitment of those who are already involved, and encourage others to join us in taking care of a most valuable resource.
FROM THE CHAIR, METRO VANCOUVER REGIONAL PARKS COMMITTEE
As the Chair of Metro Vancouver’s Regional Parks Committee, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our 16th Annual Parksfest event, a celebratory day of learning for our partners and volunteers.
Fall Parksfest is one way in which Metro Vancouver can thank you for your many efforts in supporting regional parks. We deeply appreciate your commitment to protecting natural environments, and facilitating connections between people and nature. We would also like to welcome potential volunteers and partners who have joined us to learn more about Metro Vancouver Regional Parks. It is my hope that you find a way to contribute to the regional parks system in the coming year.
This event is a wonderful opportunity for you to gather, make important connections, share experiences, and enhance your expertise. We are pleased to offer an interesting selection of workshops and a special keynote presentation, in addition to our very popular ‘Parks at a Glance’.
Once again, I would like to thank you for the important work that you do and to wish you all a stimulating day of learning!

Join us for a day of inspiring presentations and practical workshops! Regional parks and green spaces are precious resources over which we must exercise consistent care and sustained stewardship.
