Kanaka Creek Watershed Stewardship Centre Opens in Maple RidgeKanaka Creek Watershed Stewardship Centre Opens in Maple Ridge<div class="ExternalClass58D9A2D21D37494AA50637804104E37E"><p>The Kanaka Creek Watershed Stewardship Centre – a new jewel in the crown of Metro Vancouver's regional parks system – officially opened in Kanaka Creek Neglected Park in the City of Maple Ridge last month.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">The Centre resulted from an extraordinary partnership between Metro Vancouver, Kanaka Education and Environmental Partnership Society (KEEPS), and Fisheries and Oceans Canada and their supporters. The facility includes the Bell-Irving Hatchery, George Ross Learning Room, Resource Room and the "Roof to Creek" Learning Landscape and outdoor education spaces, all of which provide opportunities for education, watershed stewardship and community engagement.  </p><p>The Centre is intended as an immersive place for visitors, with a strong connection to the natural environment. Students, for example, will be able to participate in hatchery activities, conduct water quality testing, survey stream invertebrates and restore habitat. The "Roof to Creek" water feature, part of the outdoor classroom, captures onsite stormwater before it is slowed, filtered and cleansed through a series of ponds and channels before entering Kanaka Creek, thus demonstrating best practices for stormwater management.</p><p><a href="/media-room/video-gallery/regional-parks/217632014" target="_blank">Click here</a> to watch a video (produced 2012) about the start of this ambitious project.</p></div>http://heimat-deutschland.info/metroupdate/PublishingImages/kanaka.jpg2017-05-25T07:00:00ZGP0|#3b8f3b80-a7ab-4371-9209-a63c0676026a;L0|#03b8f3b80-a7ab-4371-9209-a63c0676026a|Issue 32;GTSet|#d14ffe11-45dc-48fb-8684-ff109cf15a74<div class="ExternalClass7DD586D1C8B144A98144D148F811D1DC"><p>The Kanaka Creek Watershed Stewardship Centre – a new jewel in the crown of Metro Vancouver's regional parks system – officially opened in Kanaka Creek Neglected Park in the City of Maple Ridge last month.</p></div>0Director Heather Deal, bottom left, along with Metro Vancouver Board Chair Greg Moore, Michael Meneer David Pohl, of Pacific Salmon Foundation, and Ken Williams and Ev Fairbrother, of KEEPS, officially open the Kanaka Creek Watershed Stewardship Centre.
