Surrey's Natural Areas Partnership (SNAP)

SNAP team 2017

Every summer, Surrey's Natural Areas Partnership (SNAP) employs youth to work in Surrey's parks and neighbouring communities. Our teams restore, enhance and promote Surrey's urban forest.

Work with SNAP

SNAP had a great summer enhancing our urban forest through outreach and restoration. Watch this space for summer 2020 positions.

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 plants, cleaning up refuse and yard waste, installing habitat structures, and planting native trees and shrubs.

Urban Forestry Outreach

The Urban Forestry Outreach team promotes nature appreciation and park stewardship by interacting with park neighbours and park users throughout the city. Look for them at community festivals and environmental events around Surrey, or book them for your own neighbourhood event! Contact the SNAP Coordinator at to enquire.

Tree Care

Boulevard and park trees are important parts of our City’s green infrastructure and provide many benefits to the community. The SNAP Tree Care team undertakes a range of maintenance and enhancement projects to improve the health and vitality of shade trees across Surrey.

Check out SNAP on Facebook and Twitter.


SNAP is comprised of the City of Surrey, the Green Timbers Heritage Society, the Sunnyside Acres Heritage Society, and the White Rock and Surrey Naturalists Society. It was established in 2001.
