Plants, Trees and Shrubs

Planting around the wetland park is a multi year project that started in April 2018.  The park focuses on culturally important native plants, trees and shrubs, including a number of edible trees for which we are exploring traditional uses of the fruits and bark. The Traditional Ecological Knowledge of revered Secwepemc elder Dr. Mary Thomas is being shared by her daughter Bonnie Thomas  in the creation of interpretive signs that identify native plants, trees and shrubs.  The signs have a scannable QR code that links to a webpage with detailed information on each plant.  Additional signs will showcase wetland ecology and the historical significance of this location.
