Get cozy and creative for this special tree celebration! Bake shortbread or sugar cookies with harvested hemlock needles and seasonal flavours while you learn all about our coastal tree species with a SPES educator. Find out about the beautiful western hemlock, the species that use it, and the biodiverse forest system it lives in. Each participant will receive tree cookie stencils, hemlock needles, leftover cookie dough, and a recipe to recreate these tasty creations at home.  

*Sorry, these cookies will have gluten and eggs/dairy in them, if you want to join and bring alternatives to your dietary needs, feel free to and we can adjust!

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.
