Do you know any children who are captivated by creatures? Hungry for hummingbirds? Bananas about bees? Wild over woodpeckers? Or dead set on diving into the world of ducks? SPES is running our THIRD Critter Club Series! Critter Club offers young minds a place to grow their curiosity, meet other like-minded children, and have fun!
Clubbers, age 9-13**, will meet once a week, over four weeks starting February 2nd, 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. over Zoom and will be offered an optional exciting activity to do on their own! Activities will be based around sustainable living and learning how to protect our precious wildlife. Participants will have a chance to share and showcase their individual activities the following week.
This sign-up page is for February 16 Week 3: The Dashing Ducks of Stanley Park
Local waterfowl are some of the most interesting and colorful animals in this part of the world! Stanley Park is home to many species that live here year-round and many others who stop off at Lost Lagoon and Beaver Lake during their migration. Dive into the fascinating world of ducks as SPES educators help you identify different species and understand all the evolutionary adaptations that let these creatures survive tough conditions
The club is open to new participants and children who have attended previous series. Participants can sign up for the whole series (VIP pass) or just join for one or two sessions. If Wednesday mornings are not suitable and you have a small group interested, let us know and we can figure out a time that works during or afterschool! Email us to inquire further at email@example.com

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
