 DISCOVERY WALK

 

As our changing climate brings extreme weather and rising seas to Vancouver, Stanley Park’s ecosystems will have to adapt. As local residents, how can we help the Park’s shorelife survive the coming changes? And as global citizens, what are our moral responsibilities to transform our society and economy at the scale and pace science and justice demand?

Join us on an captivating tour along the Seawall to see our shorelines with fresh eyes. Learn the importance of the spaces between tides and how residents of Vancouver might protect these for the years and generations to come.

 

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather 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.
