Stanley Park Ecology Society

Home / Stanley Park Ecology Society

Stanley Park Ecology Society is a not-for-profit environmental organization that operates in partnership with the Vancouver Park Board in Stanley Park. SPES promotes awareness of and respect for the natural world and plays a leadership role in the stewardship of Stanley Park through collaborative initiatives in education, research and conservation. The Society offers opportunities for youth and all community members to get involved in the stewardship of the park through hands-on participation in habitat restoration initiatives. Youth can directly participate in some fun and interesting programs that are headed up by artists – including the harvesting of invasive plant species and converting them into usable objects (baskets, rope), or bio-netting to improve slope stability of sensitive areas.
