A joint event for Friends of Cypress Provincial Park Society (www.cypresspark.ca) and Nature Vancouver (www.naturevancouver.ca). Membership in those societies is not required.

Walk leader and Interpreter: David Cook.

Registration is required: Because of a need to limit the size of the group and because the event may be rescheduled due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances, registration is required. Contact David at cookeco2@yahoo.com to register.

Meeting time, duration and location: 11:00am at the entrance to the Black Mountain Lodge of Cypress Provincial Park. (NOT the new Cypress Creek Lodge). Approximately four hours. There is no bus service available so if you need a lift contact David and an attempt will be made to arrange a lift amongst other registrants.

Description of event: The walk will take us through the Yew Lake area and the old-growth forest grove where we will talk about wetland ecology and old-growth forest ecology. We will then proceed along the Pump-house Road to view plants such as sundew along a seepage area. Then part-way along the upper Sunset trail to look for the mushrooms that will be “blooming” at that time of the year.
