Our new annual report is out. If you wonder what kept us busy (or how your membership fee and donation was used) this past year, here are a few, dare we say, rather impressive accomplishments that we achieved with your help:
- More than 1,200 community volunteers contributed 16,000 hours of service across 70 program areas (and thousands of cookies were consumed!)
- SPES’ hardworking stewardship volunteers removed over 410 m3 invasive species from the Park and planted 1,000 native plants
- 1,000 participants and 24 scientists participated in our first ever “Bioblitz” – a 24-hour science relay that added 152 new species to Stanley Park’s species list
- More than 800 coyote inquiries and reports were responded to by the Co-Existing with Coyotes Program team
- Our environmental educators engaged 3824 local students with nature through our Park, Classroom and Urban Camping Programs
- Our naturalists met and talked to 15,000 visitors at the Stanley Park Nature House by Lost Lagoon
- We delivered 44 Discovery Walks and took more than 1,000 people on candle-lit interpretation walks during the Creatures of the Night event last October.
- Our website got a face-lift (did you notice?)
Thank you for stepping up for nature and people in Stanley Park; take a look at our annual report to see what we achieved together.
