WHO WE ARE
Derby Reach Brae Island Parks Association (DRBIPA) is a nonprofit society providing the community with opportunities to preserve, protect and enhance the natural environment of Derby Reach and Brae Island Regional Parks in Fort Langley, BC through education events, community involvement, and land preservation opportunities.
The DRBIPA Board of Directors and Park Ambassador team are a group of individuals who love the parks. We come from all walks of life and have different interests within the parks, but we all share a desire to ensure these green spaces endure for generations to come. Join us for fun annual events like the Bedford Channel Paddle or Heritage Apple Day, and other community activities such as guided nature walks, native vegetation planting, and invasive species removal events.
Fostering stewardship of the land and education within the parks.
WHAT WE DO
In partnership with Metro Vancouver Regional Parks we work hard to provide the public with environmental stewardship opportunities at Derby Reach Regional Park and Brae Island Regional Park. We organize and host volunteer events in the parks. Help protect our lovely green mossy trails and natural environment – become a DRBIPA Park Ambassador!
Park Ambassadors work on special projects such as planting new shrubs to stop erosion on Brae Island and pull out ivy that is climbing trees and smothering native plants on the forest floor. Volunteers help out at events, contribute to our nature blog, complete environmental conservation projects, and so much more!
DRBIPA also hosts community events such as guided nature walks in the parks and nature-themed webinars. Check our events page for more information. Donations to support our community-based programs can be made through Pacific Parklands Foundation.
