Last year, 27 volunteers dedicated a combined total of 882 hours with our Eco Detectives Day Camp program! We are now looking for four volunteers per week to help with Spring Break Eco Detectives. Volunteers must be available for training during March 4, and commit to at least a one week session throughout March 13 - 24, 2017. Volunteer shifts will run as morning (8 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.), afternoon (12:30 p.m. – 5 p.m.), or all day (8 a.m. – 5 p.m.). This is an incredible learning opportunity for volunteers to become more familiar with the Park, develop their skills working with children, and help empower children to connect with nature in meaningful ways. If you would like to get involved, please contact Alicia Fontaine (vols@stanleyparkecology.ca) to let us know you are interested in this opportunity.

Thank-you to the 19 Eco Steward volunteers on Sunday who spent a combined total of 62.5 hours removing invasive plant species in Stanley Park!
Thank-you to the over 100 volunteers and staff members that attended our Annual Winter Volunteer Appreciation Party. This year we celebrated the amazing achievement of 536 volunteers contributing 15,289 volunteer hours throughout 2016!
Over the last several months the SPES conservation team, along with the help of some very dedicated volunteers, has set out at dusk and at dawn to monitor the beaver populations in Lost Lagoon and Beaver Lake. While the cold weather has slowed their activity of late, we estimate there to be 2-3 beavers sharing one lodge on Beaver Lake with another 3-5 beavers sharing 2 lodges in Lost Lagoon. The SPES team has been busy wrapping many mature willow trees along Lost Lagoon to save them from being eaten by the beavers. Thanks volunteers!
