Due to concerns regarding the COVID-19, Metro Vancouver has postponed the 2020 Parksfest.

Metro Vancouver’s regional parks and greenspaces are vital places to connect with nature and to get away from the pressures of the city. They also protect diverse natural landscapes and habitat – all located within the traditional homelands of the Coast Salish First Nations.

Parksfest is an annual opportunity to spend the day with a vibrant community of nature educators and stewards. Hear from the frontlines about the work being done to address challenges and opportunities in the face of climate change.
