Ancient Forests for Futures — 1 hour old-growth forest ecology tour    Sat Feb 22, 2020, Vancouver, BC

Since humans have walked the earth, trees have been our silent, enduring companions, yet trees live to depths beyond our conventional understanding. Might forests have lessons to teach us at this time of ecological crisis – about community, reciprocity, and ethics?

Join SPES and the Ancient Forest Alliance’s Andrea Inness! Learn how trees pass on their knowledge to the next generation, communicate complex information via small and taste, grow “old with dignity,” and keep the community strong.

During an hour-long old-growth forest ecology tour, Andrea will speak to what makes BC’s old-growth forests unique, how they communicate and support human wellbeing, and why we must ensure their protection for all generations.

After the walk, enjoy an informative slideshow presentation and Q&A about what we can learn from ancient forests, the key issues and politics surrounding BC’s old-growth forests, and how all British Columbians can help safeguard them by participating in the BC government’s current Old Growth Strategic Review.

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and work is the unceded and unsurrendered territories of the Coast Salish peoples, including the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. For thousands of years, Coast Salish people have walked this land and walked with it in a good way, harvesting foods and medicines and made good ceremony here. The abundance that these lands and waters provide us to live, work and play is due to the reciprocal relationships by which Coast Salish people lived and live today.
