EcoTEAM

EcoTEAM VOLUNTEER

The Eco Team is perfect for volunteers who want to have a flexible schedule.  There is no minimum commitment, so it is perfect for those who want to come out an try a new experience in Pacific Spirit Regional Park or buildup volunteer hours over the year.  Volunteers under 13 year must be accompanied by an adult.

What: The focus of the EcoTEAM is ecological restoration.  This means that we work in areas of the Pacific Spirit Regional Park that have been impacted by the spread of invasive plants to restore the ecological function and wildlife habitat in the site.  While we cannot return the forest to what it looked like before logging and urbanization, we aim at creating a novel ecosystem based on one or more reference ecosystems from similar sites in the Park.

  • January to September – Remove invasive plants from impacted sites
  • October to December – Plant native trees, shrubs and understory in a restoration project site

When: Most Saturdays from 1:00-4:00 (except long weekends)

Where: We work at different locations in the park.  Check out the PSPS Calendar to find out what we are up to this week.

How: Sign up on our Meet Up page
