Let’s take it back millions of years before dinosaurs, while exploring right here in Stanley Park. As we traverse the trails and take in the beauty our natural neighbours, we will discover that we walk among plants that evolved 200-400+ million years ago and yet remain growing around us almost unchanged! Join SPES Educator Julia Taylor on a light-hearted travel through time along the evolutionary track of plants and “living fossils” such as the dawn redwood, horsetails, and gingko trees.

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.
