Event Description

Meet at the water fountains at the top of Little Mountain right next to the Parking Lot at 10:30 AM. Enter at Ontario and 33rd and go up the Mountain to the parking lot at the top. The Parking lot entrance is accross from Seasons in the Park Restaurant.

Queen Elizabeth Park is a jewel of green in the middle of our city. In the 1950s some visionary people at the Vancouver Parks Board planted a beautiful arboretum and we can appreciate their foresight today. There are many water features in the park, some rock outcrops, lots of unique plant and tree specimens and some very tall older conifers. We will discuss the human history of the area before and after settlement.

By donation.

Rain or shine. Please wear footwear for possible slippery surfaces.

Celia Brauer is an Artist, an Educator and the founder and Staff of the False Creek Watershed Society (FCWS). She has organized community walks for FCWS for years and is very knowledgeable about the natural and First Nations history of Vancouver.

NOTE: "Earth Walks" are created by community leaders for the False Creek Watershed Society - a non profit group. We are very lucky to have these knowledgeable people lead us. We would love to have you join us. However, we ask that you please register for the walks only if there is a very good chance you will be able to join us, as numbers are limited. Thanks and hope to see you there!
