SPES is seeking a highly motivated and organized individual to coordinate environmental stewardship activities for community volunteers and further the mission of the society.
Stanley Park Ecology Society promotes awareness of and respect for the natural world and plays a leadership role in the stewardship of Stanley Park through collaborative initiatives in education, research and conservation. Our programs range from environmental education to hands-on conservation initiatives such as wildlife monitoring and removing invasive plant species from the Park.
This September, SPES is launching a new pilot program for families with children aged 3-5 years old and is looking for a contract Environmental Educator to lead the programs.
Duckling Discovery: Stanley Park Nature Learning for Preschoolers.
Leaving from the Stanley Park Nature House on Lost Lagoon, participants will spend time with Mother Nature in an outdoor learning program that introduces preschool aged children to Stanley Park's flora and fauna. This program offers a place for children, parents and caretakers to play, learn and connect with the great outdoors and each other.
The pilot runs Tuesdays and Thursdays September 16, 18, 23, & 25 from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m. and is based out of the Stanley Park Nature House at Lost Lagoon.
The possibility of future sessions exists and depends on success of initial pilot.
