MP gets a look at the Blaauw Eco Forest in Langley
When Langley-Aldergrove MP MP Tako van Popta graduated from Trinity Western University in 1986 with a Bachelor of Arts in history, a minor in philosophy, TWU’s 30 acre Blaauw Eco Forest was an anonymous patch of old-growth forest.
On Tuesday, July 15, van Popta returned to his alma mater to tour the Blaauw Eco Forest, a 30-acre biodiverse land gifted to Trinity Western University by the Blaauw family for public enjoyment, education and research.
Philanthropist Ann Blaauw, wife of the late Mr. Thomas Blaauw whom the forest is named after, walked the pathway with the MP and Dr. David Clements, TWU Professor of Biology and Environmental Studies.
“Thank you,” van Popta told Blaauw.
“[It’s] a great contribution to the community and the university.”
