Due to the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic restrictions, we are not organizing group activities in Stanley Park, but we do encourage you and your bubble to get out into the Park and join our SPES Earth Month BioBlitz!

We’re looking for your help to update our Life List by taking photos of the species you see in Stanley Park and posting them to iNaturalist. You can also take part by observing plant and animal species in your neighbourhood or local park! Each week in April we will explore a different challenge.

To join the BioBlitz, create an iNatutalist account and join the project “SPES Earth Month BioBlitz” on the iNaturalist website. When you take a photo, just add it to the project. Follow us on Instagram each Friday for new BioBlitz challenges! #SPESEarthMonth

This Earth Month we encourage you to take individual actions for a positive collective impact on the ecosystems around us. In addition to your participation in the SPES Earth Month BioBlitz, you can help ensure funding for our wetlands conservation work in Stanley Park. Your signature on our #KeepWetlandsWell pledge supports our habitat enhancement and restoration work in the Beaver Lake Bog wetland, in Ceperley Meadow’s wet meadow, and along the shores of Lost Lagoon and Beaver Lake. All pledgers can receive a nifty “I Love Stanley Park” pin at the Stanley Park Nature House. Here you can view a living piece of the hidden Beaver Lake Bog and learn more about this rare-to-Vancouver ecosystem.
