ATTENTION HOME LEARNERS! Take swim lessons during the day when the pool is quiet! We are offering day-time swim lessons on Fridays for school aged kids. Times and dates will be available in the aquatic lesson grid. Visit coquitlam.ca/aquatics for details.

ANNUAL MAINTENANCE CLOSURE Each year our pools must close for maintenance. Yearly maintenance is necessary in order to meet public safety standards and service expectations. The pools are open to the public up to 17 hours per day, everyday, and the systems run continuously. During the closure, we’re able to complete maintenance work that cannot be done while the facility is in use. These closures are essential for extending the life of the City’s assets, reducing the likelihood of program interruptions due to mechanical failure and ensuring a safe environment for all staff and patrons.

Weed Out Invasive Plants

Park Spark

Invasive plants kill native plants and destroy Coquitlam’s beautiful natural habitat. They spread aggressively and destroy the habitat of fish, birds, and other wildlife.

GETTING ALONG IN OUR NATURAL WORLD There’s lots to consider when you live in an urban environment that is so close to nature. Coquitlam has some helpful information and resources so you can enjoy the best of the natural world and protect it at the same time.

Be Bear Smart We live on nature’s doorstep and bears, cougars, coyotes, deer, raccoon, skunks and other wildlife are part of our environment. It is important that we avoid encouraging them to visit our properties by removing attractants, such as garbage, fruit, pet food and bird seed and preventing access to areas that wildlife may use as a den. Go to coquitlam.ca/bearsmart to learn how to make your home and property wildlife-resistant.

Pesticides Say “No” to Harmful Pesticides—We Did! Coquitlam has a Pesticide Use Control bylaw that bans many conventional pesticides typically used for garden and lawn beautification or maintenance. Although you will see them for sale they cannot be used on residential and City land in Coquitlam. There are safe alternatives that are healthier for everyone—people, pets and the environment! For a full list of products you can use and for more information, visit coquitlam.ca/pesticides

Beetlemania The European Chafer Beetle The European Chafer beetle is an invasive insect pest. Its larvae feed on the roots of grasses, causing serious damage to lawns. It is most visible when raccoons, birds and other wildlife, eager to eat the grubs, begin digging up grasses and damaging turf. The fall is a good time to do preventative lawn maintenance that can help minimize chafer beetle infestation in the spring. Visit coquitlam.ca/chaferbeetle for a year-round calendar of lawn care tips and info on nematodes, which are a safe alternative to banned pesticides.

Mindfulness Meditation

The Theologian’s Café You will have a chance to air your views and to listen to those of others on religious, spiritual and related topics. Participants from all religious affiliations (and those without one) are welcome to this non-denominational café. Moderator: John Slattery who holds a diploma in Theological Studies. Science & Religion Rapid progress in the development of artificial intelligence, genetic engineering, the workings of the human brain and many other fields raise serious ethical questions that religious people (and non-religious people for that matter) are struggling to come to terms with. Some developments even seem to strike at the very foundations of the religious experience itself. Is our technology out pacing our ability to cope with it all?

Meditation has been shown to reduce stress, relieve symptoms of anxiety and depression, and improve health and inner peace. Class includes meditation, learning new skills/topics and more.

Human Suffering Why does a loving and compassionate God permit human suffering in the first place? Is it to make a point? A punishment for bad behaviour? A test of some sort?

Shaping the Journey: Living with Dementia

Religion & Spirituality Can one be spiritual without being religious? Or religious without being spiritual? Or are the two necessarily connected? Does it depend on how you define “religious” and “spiritual”? In this season of so many religious observances it might be a good time to explore these questions.

Learn about dementia, explore strategies for coping with changes and maximizing quality of life, review information on planning for the future, and meet others who are going through similar experiences.

Exhibits Heirlooms and Treasures at Mackin House Fall 2018 to June 2019 Every day we care for, share, and preserve the things that make us who we are. Come discover how you can preserve those objects, skills, and traditions that are closest to your heart. Do you have a personal collection? Are there family heirlooms you treasure? Or maybe a recipe that has been in your family for generations? Or perhaps it a specialized skill or story you are keeping alive? During this exhibit, Coquitlam Heritage is exploring how heritage expresses who we are, where we come from, and how it ties us to our community. When we share our culture, we strengthen our connections with each other and our community.
