Share what you love about Surrey's coast for a chance to win

Did you know 20% of Surrey’s land area is coastal? As a result of climate change and sea level rise, coastal areas like ours in Surrey can expect more frequent and severe flooding. In order to plan, respond and minimize the impact of climate change, The City of Surrey is working on a process toward a Coastal Flood Adaptation Strategy (CFAS).

Surrey's 40 km coastline is an important area with:

  • Valuable farmland that produces a significant amount of food for our region
  • Critical railways, highways, roads and bridges
  • Important wildlife and habitat areas, including the internationally recognized Boundary Bay Wildlife Management Area
  • Parks, trails, golf courses and beaches that Surrey’s residents enjoy
  • Important communities and neighbourhoods, including Crescent Beach and Semiahmoo First Nation

#SurreyCoastal photo contest

From January 30 to March 12, 2017 we are inviting residents to share photos of what they love about Surrey's coast on:

  • Instagram with a comment and the hashtag #SurreyCoastal
  • on the City's Facebook page by uploading your photo in the comments section on any post related to the Surrey coastline. Include a comment with your photo about what you think is important about Surrey’s coastline.
