Saviez-vous qu’il existe de nombreux types de milieux humides dans le parc Stanley, notamment deux lacs, plusieurs ruisseaux, une tourbière, une prairie humide et des étangs éphémères? Ces terres humides – parmi les rares qui restent dans la région métropolitaine de Vancouver – fournissent un soutien essentiel à une grande variété d’animaux et de plantes. Cette année, grâce au financement d’Environnement et Changement Climatique Canada, la Stanley Park Ecology Society (SPES) travaille à la conservation de la biodiversité des milieux humides grâce à un certain nombre d’initiatives relatives à l’eau douce. Rejoignez Ariane Comeau, Gestionnaire des projets de conservation à SPES, pour en savoir plus sur les milieux humides du parc Stanley: comment ils s’en tirent, pourquoi ils sont importants et ce que les bénévoles et le personnel de SPES font pour améliorer ces habitats essentiels.


Did you know there are many different types of wetlands in Stanley Park including two lakes, several streams, a bog, a wet meadow, and ephemeral ponds? These wetlands – among the few remaining in Metro Vancouver – provide crucial support for a wide variety of animals and plants. This year, with funding from Environment & Climate Change Canada, Stanley Park Ecology Society (SPES) is working to conserve wetland biodiversity through a number of freshwater initiatives. Join Ariane Comeau, SPES Conservation Projects Manager, to learn about Stanley Park’s wetlands: how they are faring, why they are important, and what SPES volunteers and staff are doing to enhance these critical habitats.

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.
