Blogathon Vancouver 2008: The Flying Squirrels of Stanley Park

Add a Comment by Rebecca Bollwitt

I am a big fan of the Stanley Park Ecology Society and the good work they go in the park – from guided walks to ive busters maintenance of the natural landscape. They have an upcoming event highlighting the flying squirrel (yes, there are flying squirrels in Stanley Park) that I would like to mention here.

“On Saturday, August 9, 2008,the Stanley Park Ecology Society proudly presents Flying Squirrels: Denizens of the Dark, an entertaining and uniquely educational program for audiences of all ages.

The program will begin with a snappy musical introduction provided by the Stanley Park Ecology Society’s Jarrid Jenkins – a huge flying squirrel fan. He will then introduce naturalist Steve Patterson, a good friend and business partner of Sabrina and Scooter (the Northern and Southern flying squirrels living in Steve’s care). For the next hour and a half, they intend to introduce everyone to the fascinating lives that these little mammals lead when the sun goes down and people are asleep. Forget about an expensive circus – come and see these real acrobats at work and play!”

Proceeds from this event will benefit the Stanley Park Ecology Society, a non-profit, community-based organization connecting people with nature through education and stewardship initiatives in Stanley Park for 20 years.
