Cypress Provincial Park contains the most easily accessible subalpine meadows and old-growth forests in the Lower Mainland. Cypress Provincial Park Botany Reports – Past and Present provides an overview of the park’s botanical features and reports made over many years. The first report was made by Nature Vancouver’s founder Professor John Davidson in 1913, documenting plants he saw on Hollyburn Ridge and Black Mountain in July 1912. The presentation ends with a report on BC Parks’ 2017/18 Cypress Provincial Park Invasive Plant Management Strategy.
Katharine Steig is a founding member of Friends of Cypress Provincial Park Society and served on the Board for nearly 28 years. The organization was formed in 1990 to protect the park’s natural values and protest a proposal to develop downhill skiing on Hollyburn Mountain. She has also been an active member of Nature Vancouver since 1991.
Tea and cookies will be served from 7 to 7:30 pm. There will be opportunity for plant identification.
