Why donate to the Lynn Canyon Ecology Centre?

All donations go to supporting our programs, exhibits and operations of the Lynn Canyon Ecology Centre. We are operated by the District of North Vancouver Parks Department, but rely on donations, program fees and gift shop sales to cover our overhead costs. For 50 years, the Ecology Centre has provided low cost educational programs to schools, families and adults near and far. We need your support to keep providing these valued resources!

What we have done:

As of our 50th anniversary in 2021, 3.3 million people from over 70 countries have passed through our doors through since we opened in 1971. On average we get 88 000 visitors every year. We deliver an average of 100 school field trips per year. That’s 2000 students who get to learn about the beautiful temperate rainforest. Each year, we offer over 80 programs, available free or by donation to families wanting to learn about nature. With the start of virtual programs, we now provide educational opportunities for people to tune in from across the world.
