Join special guest Tasha Murray of the Invasive Species Council of Metro Vancouver and Jeannine Johnstone of SPES to identify invasive aquatic species found in Stanley Park and across Metro Vancouver.  Tasha will discuss some of the aquatic species that threaten our environment, economy and people, such as zebra mussels and American bullfrogs, while Jeannine will focus on invasive aquatics in Stanley Park including yellow flag iris and reed canary grass, and SPES’s conservation efforts within the Park.  Learn why invasive species are so harmful, how to recognize our worst aquatic invaders, and how to help minimize their impact.

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.
