Indigenous Plant Use, at Stanley Park    Fri Jul 12, 2019, Vancouver, BC

EDUCATIONAL WALK

NOTE: We meet at the #19 Stanley Park Bus Loop and will begin promptly!

Discover Spapayeq (Stanley Park)—the traditional, and unceded land of the Musqueam, Squamish Nation, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nation people.

Walk through the forest and bathe in Coast Salish knowledge of cedar and hemlock, learning through storytelling. Continue the walk down to Xwáýxway (Lumberman’s Arch) beach at low tide and explore the incredibly diverse and abundant kelp forests available in the intertidal zone. The exploration continues along the seawall up to Axachu7 (Beaver Lake) as you learn about the edible, medicinal, and survival uses of plants as well as the traditional and present-day Indigenous relationships with local flora and fauna.

While there will be no plant collection on these educational walks, Spapayeq offers a perfect setting to learn about sustainable harvesting.

Join us on this informative program to learn about local ecology from a West Coast Salish First Nations cultural perspective.
