With Spring just around the corner, we are excited to announce that 2022 Medium and Large grant applications are now open via the George Ross Legacy Stewardship Program!

Do you have a project that needs funding in the regional parks? The George Ross Legacy Stewardship Program is a funding program created to help support hands‐on citizen stewardship activities by park partners in Metro Vancouver regional parks and greenways. The Program is funded by the interest from an endowment created from the generous $2.8 million bequest from Mr. George Ross, who loved trees and parks.
