Belcarra Beachkeepers
At Belcarra Regional Park, volunteers help park visitors learn more about the creatures of sea and shore and, at the same time, shows them ways of being better stewards of the marine environment. A collaboration between Metro Vancouver Regional Parks, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, and local volunteers, this program gets volunteers out on the beach.
