Surrey’s Environmental Extravaganza makes it fun to connect with nature

THE City of Surrey invites the community to get outside and take part in the Environmental Extravaganza, a seven-week series of free family-friendly events and programs that celebrate nature in Surrey.

Explore at your own pace with self-guided activities or take part in group activities such as walks, talks, hands-on stewardship programs, stories and more.

This year’s Environmental Extravaganza highlights opportunities to celebrate World Migratory Bird Day by joining one of three different bird walks; support Invasive Species Awareness Month by removing invasive plants at a Nature Work Party; participate in Arbor Day by helping plant native trees and shrubs; and celebrate World Ocean Day by choosing from an entire week of ocean-themed activities.

Celebrating its 26th year, the Environmental Extravaganza is one of the many programs, activities and events offered by Surrey Parks to encourage residents and visitors to get outdoors and connect with nature. It runs from April to June at various locations throughout Surrey and it is made possible with the efforts of many community partners that have a shared goal of better caring for the environment in Surrey.
