The Riverview Horticultural Centre Society HOPE to INVITE you to a tree tour of a significant and beautiful part of the Lower Mainland, the Riverview Lands Arboretum

for MAP

As Many of you know we usually start the 2018 Tour Season with a Tree Tour in March. Unforunately do to issues in dealing with BC Housing we've had to cancel the scheduled tour this month. Also this is the reason we've NOT POSTED a Schedule of Tours or Advertised.

We are unable to commit until we have jumped through ALL the changing hoops that BCH requires. These were difficult enough but every year they decide to change or make more difficult what we need to do. I did everything same as last year but now we have to change some wording on our Insurance again (not an easy thing dealing with insurance companies).

We had everything they were requiring for our March tour, but have now changed the goal post yet again.

And the license agreement describes a group that is NOT US. When does the government get to dictate what a society is about???

Check back here later for a Schedule! (Hopefully)
