Dedicated Giving

The Wild Bird Trust of BC provides opportunities to mark major life events in a meaningful way, while supporting our valuable conservation and restoration work. By purchasing a bench, tree, or custom art feature sited in a special location at Maplewood Flats, residents may honour a dearly departed family member or friend, or celebrate a significant event such as a birth or marriage.


Locations for the bench, tree, or art feature are chosen in consultation with the Site Manager from an approved list – final site decisions are made by the Site Manager. Benches and art features are maintained and, if necessary, replaced by the Trust for a period of 10 years. A portion of the contribution is tax deductible.

For an Application form, or to request more information, email or call (604) 929-2379.
