In Stanley Park, our wetlands include Lost Lagoon, Beaver Lake,Ceperley Creek and all the freshwater spaces of the Park. These vital habitats act as nurseries, buffets, and shelter for a diversity of organisms including the Park’s Tree Swallows, Great Blue Herons, and a myriad of birds, amphibians and mammals like beavers and otters.

Pitch in to support your Park’s wetlands with some hands-on invasive plant pulls, invasive yellow flag iris weaving, and Tree Swallow data collection around Lost Lagoon. 

Bring your binoculars for a tour of the heron colony with our naturalists, or learn about Indigenous uses of plants on a special walking tour led by Kushi opi mani wi of the Cowichan tribes. Kids will enjoy readings from the book “Bee Friend” followed by planting sessions in the pollinator garden. Enjoy Earth cookies and complimentary coffee from Ethical Bean.
