Native Plants for Birds ~ Spring 2019 Program
Join a dedicated group of like-minded youth helping to grow hundreds of native plants, shrubs & trees selected to help build bird-supporting habitat across Vancouver. Gain experience working in an organic nursery & greenhouse, while exploring the biodiversity of our urban ecosystem; get your hands dirty contributing to the stewardship of a variety of urban habitat restoration projects while learning about Vancouver’s urban bird & native plant species. Develop leadership skills by participating in habitat restoration & community projects and events. What else...oh yes, have fun being immersed in nature while doing it!

Upon completion of the program you will earn a small stipend for your time & commitment, gain community service hours towards graduation, and receive a certificate of participation from EYA.

There are 2 opportunities to join this program: As a Program Participant (youth aged 14 - 20) or as a Program Mentor* (youth aged 16-25; either alumni of a past EYA program or older youth with some relevant experience).

SPRING PROGRAM DATES: Saturdays from March 2nd - April 27th (no session March 23rd) (8 days total)
TIME: 10am - 2pm
LOCATIONS: Strathcona & Cottonwood Community Gardens, local restoration project areas (TBD)

This is a popular program and space is limited, so get your application in early!

*NOTE: Program Mentors will act as leaders during the program, practicing leadership skills and assisting the EYA leaders to deliver the Native Plants for Birds program. Program Mentors will also commit to meeting for 1 leadership training and orientation day at the garden (meeting time TBD before the program starts), as well as a final volunteer session program wrap-up (on the last day of the program).
