Both the park and the watershed are managed by Metro Vancouver. </p><p>Metro Vancouver conducts routine surveys and assessments of its lands to monitor and understand conditions. Studies have shown there is potential for a debris flow in these two creeks that could reach the Grouse Mountain Resort parking areas, putting people and vehicles at risk. The purpose of the erosion management project is to install protection measures to help ensure people in the Grouse Mountain parking lots would not be harmed by a debris flow.</p> </div>District of North Vancouver

Work zones will be near the public areas, however, access to the Grouse Grind Trail, BCMC Route and Baden Powell Trail will be maintained throughout construction. </p></div>
