The Vancouver Park Board is announcing its vision for more nature areas, including more urban wildlife in Metro Vancouver.
It follows a meeting Monday night, and the busy work of a couple of beavers in Hinge Park.
They were part of the inspiration for a bio-diversity strategy that would see habitat for birds, salmon, otters and more beavers.
But park board chair Sarah Kirby-Young says the program won’t be without its challenges.
“Those include invasive species, so we’ll be looking at plans to combat those, and we’ll be looking to our partner at the City of Vancouver to help us do that.”
The areas include the Burrard Inlet, New Brighton Park, Stanley Park and Jericho Beach.
