Collaborations between SPES and BCIT have been ongoing for decades as many of SPES’s board and staff are grads of BCIT’s Fish, Wildlife and Recreation (FWR) Program. BCIT’s FWR and Ecological Restoration students overlap with SPES in Stanley Park throughout the year on field trips and to participate in long-term monitoring research and student projects. Many of SPES’s skilled volunteers and team leaders are also current students or past grads of BCIT.
Currently, through TV commercials that feature success stories of BCIT grads, SPES staff are spotlighted by BCIT’s marketing department. You can view the promotions by following this link.
