STEWARDSHIP WORK AND PROGRAMS
Still Creek Streamkeepers
The Still Creek Streamkeepers are a group of neighbours and citizen scientists who help take care of Still Creek and Renfrew Ravine, with the support of Still Moon Arts Society. They monitor the health of Still Creek and run activities that help improve water quality and local ecosystems.
Shedding Light, Still Creek Restoration Project
Shedding Light combines hands-on restoration work, educational talks, and creation of green infrastructure to address environmental issues in the Still Creek watershed. This project encourages community members to actively learn by listening to local speakers while participating in physical stewardship activities.
Crow Roost Twilight Bike Ride
In February or early March each year, Still Moon organizes a twilight bicycle ride along the Central Valley Greenway to quietly follow the crows to their roost on the banks of Still Creek.
Much of Still Moon Arts’ stewardship work is aimed at restoring Still Creek and the Renfrew Ravine, the last natural ravine in Vancouver with an above-ground stream running through it. Read more about the various installations and restoration work we have done over the years with the help of community members.
