The impacts of colonization are deeply rooted in the history, landscape, and people surrounding what is colonially known as Stanley Park. This peninsula has been influenced by people for thousands of years, since time immemorial by Indigenous communities living with the land, and by the enormous impacts of the logging industry that swept through the Pacific Northwest in the 1800’s. Join SPES Educator Anna Bondartchouk on a short outing to explore some evidence of logging in Stanley Park, as well as some of the history of springboard logging.
Accessibility notes: This program requires moving at a moderate pace with moderate inclines on some uneven surfaces on South Creek Trail (such as gravel and pavement) for up to 1 hour. If you have any questions about accessibility, please email Anna at email@example.com
This program will meet at the Stanley Park Rose Garden (west side of Pipeline Road and under the white arches) and proceed to South Creek Trail. Please arrive 5 minutes early to sign in. (1) (2) (3) (4) (5)

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.
