Join SPES Environmental Educator Hannah Dyck-Chan to explore the bizarre life in Stanley Park’s intertidal zone. Learn about the creatures and algae that call this zone – between low and high tide – home. Observe the adaptations that help them deal with an ever-changing environment, and learn what impacts climate change will have on this special ecosystem (including the recent devastating “heat dome” event in BC).  Hannah will also discuss some of the conservation efforts that take place in the Park, including SPES’s intertidal surveys.  Don’t miss the chance to discover this amazing world hiding between the tides!   

This program will follow approved COVID protocols, and attendees must respect these protocols in order to participate in the program.  All participants must pre-register – NO DROP-INS ALLOWED.  To make everyone comfortable, we will encourage distancing and will be keeping numbers low to accommodate this.  This means slightly more expensive ticket prices for this program – but we hope to be able to return to our pre-COVID ticket prices in the future.

This program will meet at the Stanley Park #19 Bus Loop (located in between the Stanley Park Pavilion and the parking lot for the Stanley Park Railway).  Please try to arrive at least 15 minutes in advance of the program.

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
