A Passport to Metro Vancouver’s Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve

The Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve (LSCR) in North Vancouver is a destination for outdoor adventure but also plays a critical role in providing the region with safe drinking water.

Last month, recreation users and the public learned more about the LSCR at its annual open house, organized by Metro Vancouver and MODUS.

MODUS designed the open house as a friendly, drop-in format where visitors were given a paper event guide or “passport.” They could then participate in activities at eight stations, getting their passport stamped and being entered to win a prize.

The first five stations profiled LSCR programs, facilities and trail maintenance projects. The last three stations gave participants an opportunity to provide comments on a new Trail Strategy, volunteer opportunities in the watershed, and future educational programming.

Feedback on the event was very positive, with participants describing the event as “fun and informative” with “great visuals,” and a “great opportunity to interact directly with the Metro Vancouver team and other stakeholders.”

Over the coming months, Metro Vancouver will review the detailed input provided, report back via the LSCR E-Newsletter, and determine next steps on several projects.
