Protecting Surrey's forests, watersheds and streams promotes healthy, productive environments for both wildlife and residents. Environmental protection in Surrey involves everything from helping prevent water pollution of our streams and rivers, to removing invasive plants regularly, to protecting trees and much more.

Surrey’s approach to protecting our natural areas is outlined in our Biodiversity Conservation Strategy. Learn about how we're working towards achieving these goals and how you can get involved in protecting Surrey's natural areas.
