Save Coyote Creek
 
IN THE NEWS WHAT'S NEW TRAFFIC SCHOOLS ENVIRONMENT ACT NOW!
 
 
The Coyote Creek recreational parkland is home to diverse habitat and is contained within the well-documented Fleetwood habitat corridor. The extensive inventory of plants, insects, birds and mammals is visible daily.

This recreational green space and surrounding communities was a brilliant and forward-thinking plan 25 years ago…but now it may be gone for greed…and once gone, its gone forever!

We need to preserve this green space for the community, for future generations and for the habitat lives who have no voice.

The City of Surrey has a Biodiversity Strategy, a plan to ensure “diverse life” organisms coexist for the betterment of all lives…how does ripping out 23 acres of a natural habitat to replace with asphalt and concrete support this strategy?

Please help us save this large Fleetwood recreational parkland…STOP the Proposal…and Sign the Petition!

As Stewards of the area how do we put a price on:
  • Added pollution
  •  Traffic delays and pedestrian safety
  •  Hospital congestion
  •  Quality of education
  •  Loss of habitat and greenspace. Loss of habitat hubs and corridors
 
ACT NOW !
