For this special in-person Critter Club, join Talaysay Tours for one of their many fantastic family tours! Your Talaysay Cultural Ambassador will take you on a forest walk and share the rich stories and history of the land while you learn how the trees and plants are used by indigenous people for food, medicine, and technology.  Learn to identify a variety of indigenous plants and tree species so when you venture into the forest you, too, will know what is edible, medicinal, and adaptable for technology. Emphasis on Indigenous Ways of Knowing, Sustainable Practices and Ecology, and good stories. This is for ages 9-13, parents and guardians are welcome to join! 


Talaysay Tours, owned by Candace and Larry Campo, Shíshálh (Sechelt) and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) First Nation, offers you an enriched cultural outdoor experience. We are experts of the Salish Sea & Northwest Coast. Our goal is to provide our clients with unique outdoor cultural tours that promote wellness and memorable experiences that will last a lifetime. Many of our tours are family and kid friendly and require no previous outdoor experience. 

This program will meet at the Stanley Park Information Booth (located on Stanley Park Drive near the horse-drawn tours area). Please try to arrive at least 15 minutes in advance of the program.
