This is a walking tour in Stanley Park. Your Talaysay guide-instructor will take you on a forest walk and teach the rich stories and history of the land while you learn how the trees and plants are used by indigenous people for food, medicine, and technology. Learn to identify a variety of indigenous plants and tree species so when you venture into the forest you too will know what is edible, medicinal, and adaptable for technology. Emphasis on Indigenous Ways of Knowing, Sustainable Practices and Ecology, and good stories.
