The Environmental Committee is made up of a small number of dedicated volunteers who share a common vision – the continued re-greening of Hastings Park and the eventual daylighting of Hastings Creek. We organize and participate in activities in the park throughout the year, including a monthly Nature Walk through the Sanctuary, and public outreach at events such as the Hastings-Sunrise Summer Kick-off and Canada Day events.
As part of our park stewardship initiative, we conduct Park Watch inspections where we record park activities, wildlife presence, plant life, and vegetation management and site maintenance issues. We routinely share our observations with Park Board and PNE staff, trying to protect natural values and enhance the public’s enjoyment of this Green Miracle.
We welcome new volunteers, come and check us out during a Nature Walk. If you are a member and would like to become more involved by joining this Committee please let us know by e-mailing us.
