Some of my favourite gift guide additions every year are the symbolic gifts of nature that Stanley Park Ecology Society comes up with (like adopting a heron nest) to boost support over the holidays. This year they have a whole roster of funds you can support:
Give The Gift of Nature with Stanley Park Ecology Society
Choose from the following gifts:
Wildlife Monitoring Fund: Help SPES better understand the wildlife species of Stanley Park to safeguard their habitat.
Habitat Restoration Fund: Support SPES volunteers in their work to restore habitat to enhance biodiversity in the Park’s forests and wetlands.
School Programs Fund: Help SPES bring their environmental education school programs out of Stanley Park and onto school grounds during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Nature Education Fund: SPES is bringing the wonders of Stanley Park to you with new public online programming. Help SPES expand their program topics and work with more ecology experts.
With your “gift of nature” you will receive a special certificate via email that honours your contribution to the park we all love. Donate in honour of someone special and they’ll personalize the certificate for whomever you wish.
Stanley Park is an oasis for wildlife and Vancouverites alike, and SPES has continued to maintain and enhance the Park’s varied habitats throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, while adapting its education programs online.
Follow SPES on Facebook or Instagram for their latest news and info.
