COVID-19 Response

Bench closed due to Covid-19

For the health and well-being of our volunteers and members of the public, and to limit the spread of Coronavirus (COVID19), we have closed our site facilities (Nature House, Greeter Hut, Coast Salish Plant Nursery) and suspending all public programs (including nature walks) until further notice. Some of our events are being offered online, where appropriate. See our Eventbrite page to see a full list of our virtual events.

We also wanted to update you and share that our trails remain open. The parking lot is now open on weekends as well. Enjoy them at your own risk, while practising social distancing (1-2 metres to other people) and not assembling in groups.

While we are spending more time at home we welcome you to browse our website, and enjoy our curated selection of birding and conservation images on our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter feeds. Please share your own images with our community online and tag them @maplewoodflats.

      Hi Jean,

      Yes we do have frogs at the Conservation Area. You can definitely hear them throughout the Conservation Area. Seeing them might be a bit harder, but with a bit of searching (especially near the West Pond area), you should be able to find some frogs. Hope this helps!
