IN-PERSON KIDS AND FAMILY EDUCATIONAL RESTORATION
Spread the word – invasive plants are here and we can help keep them at bay! Did you know that many introduced plants out-compete native species and threaten biodiversity? Join SPES educator Anna Bondartchouk at Prospect Point to learn how to identify invasive ivy, Himalayan blackberry, and other plants we’ll see at this time of year! Find out answers to questions like “What exactly is an invasive species?” and “Why are they harmful to Stanley Park?” Through games, exploring, and pulling out ivy, we’ll soon be experts on these introduced invaders! Ages 7 to 12.

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.
