      Categories: Kids

      starfishWhere do beach crabs come from? How does seaweed hold on without roots? We will head down to Lumberman’s Arch beach to uncover the incredible world of intertidal plants and animals. For accompanied children ages 5-14. To preregister, email ync@stanleyparkecology.ca.

    2. [EVENT FULL] Stanley Park Eco Stewards Volunteer Event
      10:00 am – 1:00 pm

      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.

      Fascinating relationships like those between pollinators and plants, or trees and mycelium, are the result of a millenia’s worth of selective pressures. Join us to learn about where these and other unique adaptations have come from and where they might be going.
