You can help become part of a brighter, greener future, for this fundamental park that is enjoyed by over 18 million visitors a year.
For over 35 years, SPES has provided education, conservation, and research rooted in Stanley Park. They’ve helped conserved habitats and wildlife, creating a haven that captures the hearts of visitors from around the world.
“Invasive species are the second leading threat to biodiversity and improving biodiversity is the strongest natural defense against climate change,” says Executive Director Tricia Collingham. “This year our team removed 500 cubic meters of invasive material which equates 50 dump trucks worth and planted over 1,800 native plants (37 species)!”
- SPES Public Education and Community Engagement Programs reach more than 50,000 community members
- SPES co-hosted Vancouver Bird Week Celebration welcomes 40,000 visitors and birding enthusiasts each year.
- 800 dedicated volunteers, along with nonprofit and corporate partners, contribute over 6,000 hours annually with SPES
“We conduct regular habitat and wildlife monitoring to study trends in the Park’s health and our team educates thousands of people each year,” adds Collingham. “In 2023, we engaged over 5,000 children in environmental education – we are inspiring the next generation through connection with nature!”
