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 Jeannine Johnstone, SPES Stewardship Coordinator, 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.
