Moving Up reflects on the ways that urban animals and people adapt to their environment and the convergence between nature, local housing, and industry.  Having provided the gnawed branches for the cast elements within the sculpture, the beavers from nearby Mackay Pond can be seen as co-creators of this artwork. 

Moving Up is one of several public artworks that can be found on the Spirit Trail. This waterfront-oriented, multi-use and fully accessible greenway currently runs through the District of North Vancouver, City of North Vancouver, District of West Vancouver, and Squamish Nation.
