Stanley Park Ecology Society (SPES) is a non-profit organization rooted in the community. For over three decades, SPES has used interpretive programming and community initiatives to bring about positive change and awareness of Stanley Park as a precious urban oasis, and to promote its ecological well-being.

School, Public and Conservation Programs engage participants with hands-on science and interpretive activities empowering stewardship in the fragile balance of the Stanley Park urban ecosystem. By becoming a donor you become a partner in this important work.

Every year, SPES:

  • Offers free or low-cost interactive public programs that give thousands of children and adults an opportunity to discover more about the natural wonders of an urban wildlife oasis
  • Connects over 12,000 school students with nature through our dynamic school programs
  • Engages community volunteers and citizen scientists in the stewardship of Stanley Park through activities including monitoring species and ecosystems at risk and restoring habitat
