Ever wondered about the plants of Stanley Park? Learn how groups like SPES and the Invasive Species Council of Metro Vancouver (ISCMV) are working to preserve native biodiversity through environmental stewardship efforts, including invasive removal.

Join special guest Tasha Murray, of the ISCMV, to identify various native and invasive plant species found in the park and across Metro Vancouver. Jeannine Johnstone, SPES Stewardship Coordinator, will share habitat restoration activities happening around Stanley Park. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions of the presenters and learn about ways to get involved in habitat restoration projects in Stanley Park and throughout Metro Vancouver.

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and work is the unceded and unsurrendered territories of the Coast Salish peoples, including the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. For thousands of years, Coast Salish people have walked this land and walked with it in a good way, harvesting foods and medicines and made good ceremony here. The abundance that these lands and waters provide us to live, work and play is due to the reciprocal relationships by which Coast Salish people lived and live today.
