Join SPES’s “Wet & Wild!” Earth Day celebration

Earth Day is celebrated this year on Monday, April 22, but SPES is holding its own celebration on Saturday, April 27 and we invite you to join us at Lost Lagoon to support one of the planet’s most important ecosystems: wetlands. In Stanley Park, our wetlands include Lost Lagoon, Beaver Lake, Ceperley Creek and all the freshwater spaces of the Park. These vital habitats act as nurseries, buffets, and shelter for a diversity of organisms including the Park’s Tree Swallows, Great Blue Herons, and a myriad of birds, amphibians and mammals like beavers and otters.

Pitch in to support your Park’s wetlands with some hands-on invasive plant pulls, English ivy weaving, Tree Swallow data collection, wetland bird crafts and more! Bring your binoculars for a tour of the heron colony with our naturalists. And don’t miss our famous Earth cookies and complimentary coffee from Ethical Bean.

Mmmm…Earth cookies! (Photo: SPES)

When: Saturday, April 27, noon to 4:00 p.m.
