The Stanley Park Ecology Society is currently recruiting volunteers for our summer Eco Ranger program.  Eco Rangers work as nature interpreters, roving through the Park answering all sorts of questions and engaging visitors in conversation about local ecology and cultural history. This is a great chance to gain valuable work experience, skills, and knowledge in ecology and public outreach. Training sessions will be on 3 Saturdays and 2 Wednesday evenings throughout June.
