Tour the successful Blakeburn Lagoons Ecological Park in Port Coquitlam with your fellow BMN members. It’s far too nice to be indoors in June, so for our June meeting we’ll be outside walking around the newly-developed Blakeburn Lagoons Park (2900 block, Elbow Place Port Coquitlam). Meet at the main entrance on Elbow Pl. There is plentiful street parking or park at nearby Blakeburn Elementary School.
There is 1.6 km of flat trails with wildlife viewing platforms. This remediated site now has six ecological habitat zones, with plantings of 100,000 indigenous shrubs and groundcover plants, more than 1,300 indigenous trees and two acres of native grasses. Blakeburn is so successful that it quickly became an eBird hotspot with a list of 136 species. If the weather cooperates, we will stay later to watch the bats emerge around 9:15pm.
