Stanley Park Nature House on Lost Lagoon
Vancouver, BC V6G 2S1
Let’s kick off Vancouver Bird Week with a celebration of our local birds! Bringing together bird enthusiasts and the bird-curious, visitors can create bird-themed crafts, learn how to spot common backyard birds, and take some Instagram worthy shots with our feathery photo wall.
This event will also feature the return of the popular Bird Parade many will remember from the International Ornithological Congress last year! Complete with stilt-walkers and hand-crafted creations courtesy of Still Moon Arts Society, the Bird Parade is sure to be a highlight activity for visitors. Festivities will take place at and around the Stanley Park Nature House on Lost Lagoon.
Occurring on World Migratory Bird Day – the original inspiration for Vancouver Bird Week – this Take-Off is the perfect way to wet your beak for more bird fun!

Stanley Park Ecology Society (SPES) – a registered charity since 1988 – began as the Stanley Park Zoological Society. Following the closure of the Park’s zoo in 1995, the society revised its name but continued with its aims of education, conservation and outreach programs.
In June 1997, SPES and the Vancouver Park Board entered into a Joint Operating Agreement that documents the nature of our reciprocal relationship. As the primary provider of land-based education interpretive services in Stanley Park, SPES’s role in the stewardship of Stanley Park is undertaken through a combination of:
SPES also advises the Park Board on conservation issues within the Park with an emphasis on wildlife, habitat and Species at Risk. The Park Board provides facilities including the Stanley ParkNature House on Lost Lagoon, the 2nd floor Dining Pavilion offices, and the Earthen Architecture CobPopcorn Stand in the Miniature Train Plaza.
Grants, private donations and memberships, program revenues and service fees fund SPES. In addition, we rely on our dedicated volunteers, committed staff and board members and the generous support of local businesses and foundations.
