Do you enjoy the Family Events that PSPS produces?.. go into putting these on?.. The Cost of Success.. During the nine-month period ended May 31, 2011, we received a total of 3,823 volunteer hours from 1,271 volunteers.. At a rate of $25 per volunteer hour this contribution to our Park would be valued at $95,575.. Up to now Metro Vancouver has been paying for the costs of supporting all our projects and programs, but our success is outstripping our financial resources.. Can you help support our work?.. We Appreciate Your Help!.. Your donation, regardless of the amount, is greatly appreciated! It will help PSPS continue to organize volunteer involvement in our Park stewardship activities and our outreach programs..  ...   We provide a way for groups and individuals who enjoy this Park to meet, exchange ideas, help coordinate Park activities, operate successful Park stewardship work parties, hold engaging family programs, educate the public on nature and parks, and hold special community events.. To do all this we recruit volunteers from our wide community of Park users and supporters.. In addition to the benefits provided to the Park, our volunteer programs provide youth with the opportunity to connect with nature.. Our Family Programs, Trail Troupers, Stories Along the Trail, and Take Another Look are not only directed at enhancing this connection, but also engage young volunteer interpreters in designing and implementing these popular events.. Furthermore, approximately 80 – 85% of the volunteers for the invasive species removal work parties are between the ages of 14 – 25 years of age (and sometimes younger)..
