Spring has sprung and love is in the air for the wildlife in Stanley Park!
Do you have burning questions about the love lives of your favourite Stanley Park critters? Like, do eagles really mate for life? Is banana slug slime attractive? Why don’t female sea otters just give up on males altogether?
Join us at the Nature House on Lost Lagoon to find out the answers to these questions and learn about the love lives of the animals of Stanley Park. Test your naughty nature knowledge with a mating guessing game – can you match the wild mating rituals with the right animals? Afterwards, you will get the chance to learn more about these rituals and how we as humans tend to anthropomorphize animal behaviours.
We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and work is the unceded and unsurrendered territories of the Coast Salish peoples, including the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. For thousands of years, Coast Salish people have walked this land and walked with it in a good way, harvesting foods and medicines and made good ceremony here. The abundance that these lands and waters provide us to live, work and play is due to the reciprocal relationships by which Coast Salish people lived and live today.
