Letter from Pacific Spirit Park Society

Dear Parents,

Here is a letter from the Pacific Spirit Park Society.
I once joined the EcoTeam with my children in a tree planting, and it was an amazing experience!

Hello Everyone!

And just like that, our second weekend back in the park! It’s great seeing familiar faces, as well as new ones. We will be back again this coming weekend with EcoTeam and Water Quality Monitoring on Saturday, and EcoRestoration Monitoring on Sunday. Scroll below for more info!

BUT…

Before you RSVP, please take the time to go through our COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan, as well as MetroVancouver’s. Here is the link to the folder containing both of those: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1rKDFIya8F7JfpWchtWcJa6jYTrj8AcdV?usp=sharing

Location is posted on the meetup link below.

Still working on our red-legged frog site this week. We’ve been laying down hemp coffee bags and covering them in mulch in order to suppress the regrowth of invasive species around our native plantings. It’s hard work, but so satisfying! 

For this week’s event, all the information you need is found on our MeetUp event, which you can reach by clicking the button below.

We will be running the next EcoRestoration Monitoring event on Sunday, August 30th.

Time: 10am-1pm

 Still Recruiting!!!
In ecological restoration, an important step is the monitoring process. In order to for us to know whether our project has been successful, we visit all our restoration sites and check on the native plantings, as well as the invasive species. This program is very scientifically based, and will teach you a ton about invasive species, native species, the ecological restoration method, and everything in between!

Due to COVID, we are operating at a lower capacity, with volunteer groups being no larger than 4 volunteers.
 RSVP is required to attend this event!
If you are interested in being part of the team, send us an email at:

First event happening this Saturday, August 29th.

Time: 9:00am – 1:00pm

RSVP required to attend
 
Camosun Bog has a rich history in Vancouver. So much so, that it has been subject to a multitude of scientific studies and restoration projects. We are constantly monitoring the water levels and water quality of the bog in order to reserve one of the park’s most unique ecosystems.

This volunteer program runs once a month and requires a dedicated team of volunteers. The work is scientific and will help participants get a grasp on restoration, the scientific method, and other facets of environmental science. The team is small, with no more than 5 volunteers needed.

If you are interested in being part of the team, send us an email at:

What better way to inspire stewardship for our park than to take a walk through our magical forests, or mysterious bog? Through our EcoWalk program, we equip volunteers with the materials and confidence they’ll need to lead interpretive walks through these natural systems. We focus our discussions on tree biology and ecology, drawing on different teaching methods to immerse participants. In order to become one of our interpreters, we can schedule a convenient time and take a walk ourselves while going over all the material. Our walks are open to the public and typically last ~1 hour.
