Still Moon Arts Society inspires vibrant and connected communities by creating artistic experiences and nurturing a passion for nature.

Our belief in the power of artistic experiences to move and engage people guides us as we bring together art, environment, and community in East Vancouver, with specific focus on the Renfrew-Collingwood neighbourhood and Still Creek watershed.

Since 2004, we have used art to raise awareness and bring about positive change by mobilizing the local community to restore the Renfrew Ravine from a neglected dumping ground to a place of natural beauty, and educational opportunities.

Featured Events

World Wetlands Day and Imbloc Celebration

Stewardship Work Party at North Renfrew Ravine Park

This stewardship session will focus on removing butterbur from along the boardwalk and other introduced species along the bank of the creek. We will also pick up any garbage we find in the ravine.

Join fellow community members at this restoration session for an evening of learning about native and invasive plants, as well as chatting about stream health and monitoring.
