For many, the spring season is marked by colourful flower blooms. For a few weeks each year, over 40,000 individual cherry trees suddenly paint Vancouver neighbourhoods in splashes and showers of pink petals. Nina Shoroplova, author and photographer of Legacy of Trees: Purposeful Wandering in Vancouver’s Stanley Park, recently became a cherry scout for the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival. Join Nina as she shares what she has learned about cherry trees, as well as where you can go to enjoy cherry blossoms in Stanley Park and Vancouver’s West End this season. 


Nina Shoroplova is a historian, researcher, photographer, and author. In 2020, she published Legacy of Trees: Purposeful Wandering in Vancouver’s Stanley Park, a touching and informative account of tree histories, planting and variety in Stanley Park. As a recent graduate of the Master Gardeners Association of BC, Nina takes every opportunity to share what she has learned about her favourite plants: trees.

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
