Thank you for joining us to celebrate 40 years!

Thanks to all delegates, sponsors and exhibitors for joining us to celebrate 40 years of BCRPA's Annual Parks and Grounds Spring Training! This milestone was celebrated with a 70's theme and included a special presentation with highlights of popular culture, parks and grounds trends, and BCRPA in the last four decades.

We hope you enjoyed the presentations from the international and local speakers, covering topics on climate change, innovations in operations, trail maintenance, tree canopy and more.
