Abbotsford Workshop looks at the top 5 mistakes people make when caring for nature

The Fraser Valley Conservancy (FVC) is hosting a new in-person workshop on Saturday, August 27th as part of its popular Nature Stewardship School program.

This half-day workshop will introduce and explore five common mistakes people make when trying to care for nature. Participants will also learn what they should do instead to become better stewards of the Fraser Valley.

The Stewardship Slip-ups workshop will be held at the University of the Fraser Valley’s Abbotsford Campus from 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm.

In creating this workshop, FVC polled local environmental experts to find common mistakes people make when trying to help local wildlife and ecosystems.

The FVC has identified several common activities where certain decisions can have unintended and even harmful consequences.

Slip-ups can occur when setting up boxes for owls or bats, when trying to control invasive species, or when trying to relocate or rescue wildlife.

Aleesha Switzer, a biologist on the FVC project, said:

“For example, if you want to set up a barn owl box, you may accidentally choose a European design that is not large enough for your local owl. We want to raise awareness so everyone can find the best tools and information to help nature.”

Anyone interested in caring for nature is welcome. No prior knowledge required. Participants are encouraged to bring nature-related questions for discussion.

The fee is $5 per person and space is limited. Registration is required and can be done online at fraservalleyconservancy.ca (click “Events”).

FVC works to promote environmental protection and conservation throughout the Fraser Valley.
