Stanley Park, a cultural mecca and ecological wonder right in the heart of Vancouver, is the perfect place to enjoy a First Nations interpretive tour. While on the tour, guests learn the many stories of the region, as well as the intimate cultural and scientific knowledge of the Northwest Coast trees and plants. Still today, Aboriginal people continue to gather and harvest these same plants for food, medicine, art and technology. Every tree and plant is deemed sacred, having a purpose, which supports the local Indigenous societies for generations. Learn about the special stories each sacred tree holds.
