Surrey's Natural Areas Partnership (SNAP)

SNAP team 2015

In 2001, the Green Timbers Heritage Society, Sunnyside Acres Heritage Society, and the White Rock and Surrey Naturalists Society joined with the City of Surrey to form the Surrey Natural Areas Partnership (SNAP). Every summer, SNAP employs post-secondary students to work in habitat restoration and environmental outreach.

Within SNAP, you'll work in the community to restore, enhance, and protect Surrey's natural area parks, and to promote environmental stewardship of these areas.

SNAP Teams

Habitat Restoration


The Habitat Restoration team restores and enhances natural areas like forests and meadows. They make a big difference by:

  • Removing invasive plant species
  • Cleaning up refuse and yard waste
  • Installing habitat structures, and
  • Planting native trees and shrubs

Environmental Outreach

The Environmental Outreach team promotes nature appreciation and park stewardship by interacting with park neighbours and park users throughout the city. The team teaches children about the importance of nature in the city while leading fun and interactive programs such as Nature Play. Look for them at community festivals and environmental events around Surrey, or book them for your own neighbourhood event!
