Planting around the wetland park is a multi year project that started in April 2018. With the addition of the forest garden in 2020, we introduced many more culturally important shrubs and plants with guidance from Secwepemc Elders.
The Traditional Knowledge of revered Elder Dr. Mary Thomas is 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.
