Have you heard water gurgling under the article writers needed manhole covers as you walk around Mount Pleasant? Maybe you heard Brewery viagra super active Creek, St. George Creek, and China Creek, which flowed into False Creek when its water used to reach all the way to Clark Drive.

Many streams have been paved over.

Why and how would we bring them back to daylight?

We invite you to join Bruce Macdonald and Bryn Davidson for a conversation about daylighting neighbourhood streams. We will begin with an opening song led by Russell Wallace, in honour of the neighbourhood streams.

The conversation will be facilitated by writer and Mount Pleasant resident, Rita Wong.

Bruce Macdonald is the author of Vancouver: A Visual History and worked closely with the Brewery Creek Historical Society.

Bryn Davidson is a Mount Pleasant resident, and a designer and sustainability consultant who has proposed a plan to daylight St. George Creek.

Russell Wallace is a composer and musician who sings with the groups Tzo’kam and Tiqilap (whose first CD will be launched at the NEC on June 18).

This event is free. It is organized by Mount Pleasant residents. Anyone who cares about Mount Pleasant and its streams is invited to participate.

All are welcome. Please email rwong@ecuad.ca to RSVP so we have a sense of how many people to bring snacks for.

We would like to acknowledge the support of the Neighbourhood Small Grants Project and the Vancouver Foundation.
