Celebrate Burns Bog’s new status

On Oct. 13, find out what the Ramsar designation means for the 'Lungs of the Lower Mainland.'

You’ve heard the news: Burns Bog and other wetlands in the Lower Mainland have finally been given Ramsar status. Now come and celebrate with coffee and Cobbs Bakery goodies. This is a historic moment in community efforts to conserve Burns Bog – it’s been 17 years in the making.

On Saturday, Oct. 13, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., find out what the Ramsar designation means for Burns Bog. Discover what the Burns Bog Conservation Society does. Start your Christmas shopping. Become a member.

The event is at #4-7953 120 St., right behind the Greek Village Restaurant at the intersection of Scott Road and 80 Avenue. Coffee and Labrador tea by donation. RSVP at events@burnsbog.org.

Staff will be on hand to share what they’ve been working on, and what the fall has in store. This is the perfect opportunity to swap stories about Burns and network with fellow nature lovers.
