We are so excited to host Talaysay Tours for their live Talking Trees Tour of Stanley Park online. If you can’t join us for this online session, keep an eye out as we will be hosting Talaysay Tours again in April and May, for this and other tours!
From Talaysay Tours: “Each plant, each tree has its own special story. Explore Vancouver’s iconic Stanley Park, Beaver Lake, with our local Indigenous guide – cultural ambassador who will highlight how the local trees and plants of the Pacific Northwest have been harvested by our people for food, medicine and technology for thousands of years. Our guides are members of local Indigenous communities and the surrounding region. They will share our ecological practices, ancient and contemporary history, stories, legends and Indigenous ways of living with you.”
*Tickets must be purchased in advance. Fees for this program are based on a sliding scale – you choose what you pay! The sliding scale is slightly higher on this program and with a limited number of the cheaper tickets, but it is still less expensive than a normal in-park Talking Trees Tour. Your contributions help support our online programs and this fabulous local Indigenous-led company! Ticket sales close 30 minutes before the start of the program.
**This program will take place on Zoom, so please make sure you have Zoom downloaded well in advance of the webinar. A Zoom link can be found within your confirmation email, and will also be sent out one hour before the start of the program. Only one ticket required per household.
***This is a pilot program with an external educator, so at this time we won’t be sharing a recording for this program.
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.
