Have you ever gazed in wonder at the miniature forests that cover the trees, rocks, and ground?  Mosey over to this program with UBC professor and moss maven Shona Ellis to absorb info about the magical mosses all around us.  Shona will explore the amazing diversity of mosses, unfurl their fascinating flowerless life cycles, and identify some of the most common mosses you can see in Stanley Park.  Don’t miss the chance to find out more about these beautiful bryophytes (and a few lovely liverworts, too)!

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.
