IN-PERSON PROGRAM  

Summer is here and the wetlands, forests and shorelines of Stanley Park are full of colour! The pretty pink flowers of salmonberry transition into stunning red, yellow, and orange berries. Birds, insects, and mammals (including humans) have long been interconnected with plants during the flowering and fruiting season. Curious to find out more about local plants? Join horticulturist and environmental educator Jeannine Johnstone for an outdoor lesson in identifying these plants beyond their flowers and berries! There will be no harvesting allowed during this program.
