VOLUNTEERING

 

May is Invasive Species Action Month in BC! Natural habitats are being threatened by invasive species in Stanley Park, but SPES—in partnership with the Invasive Species Council of Metro Vancouver and the Vancouver Park Board—is one step ahead of species like English ivy, Himalayan blackberry, and yellow flag iris.

In this Science Odyssey event, join us as citizen scientists for a special workshop on how to identify plant species, get hands-on by removing invasive species, and celebrate collaborative efforts for enhancing ecosystems in Stanley Park and beyond.

A reminder email with detailed information about the day’s activity will be sent to registered volunteers a few days before the event. Volunteers should arrive dressed for the weather with sturdy shoes, and be prepared to work on uneven terrain. 

To register or for more information, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at 604-681-7099, vols@stanleyparkecology.ca, or use the form below.

 

 

 

Science Odyssey is ten days of discovery and innovation. It is Canada’s largest celebration of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, featuring fun and inspiring experiences in museums, research centres, laboratories and classrooms from coast to coast.

Powered by NSERC, Science Odyssey demonstrates how discoveries and innovations shape our daily lives and foster a strong science culture in Canada.
