SPES uses the Zeffy platform to process payments, so your entire purchase goes to us. If you’d like to help Zeffy keep running its services, you can choose to tip them. If you don’t want to, choose “Other” in the drop-down menu and then enter $0.
It’s warm, the days are long, and the shrubs outside are waving their branches…beckoning you to come learn about plants! Come join SPES Educator Anna Bondartchouk for a casual and good-humoured outing to a local trail – all to touch, smell, and get to know some truly iconic greenery. We’ll see what we see and learn a few cool facts about plants together along the way. Learn some common plants, where they like growing, how they reproduce, and whether they have a funny smell or not.
Accessibility notes: This program requires moving at a moderate pace with moderate inclines on some uneven surfaces, on sidewalks and paths around Beaver Lake. If you have any questions or input about accessibility, please email Anna at email@example.com
This program will meet at the grassy patch next to the Stanley Park Bus Loop (located near the Stanley Park Dining Pavilion and Stanley Park Rose Garden). Please arrive 5 minutes early to sign in. (1) (2) (3) (4)

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.
