      Natural habitats in Stanley Park are being overtaken by invasive species! Come learn about the ecology of the park while working with other volunteers to help conserve its biodiversity.

      Together, we will work to restore degraded habitats in the Park by removing invasive plant species, planting native species, decommissioning unsanctioned trails, and adding other habitat enhancements.

      For more information on how to register, what to bring, and our meeting location, please contact our Stewardship Programs Coordinator.
