A stretcher is created out of rope and sticks, we have to find our way back to the camp!
Monday we released our Painted Lady butterflies at Trillium Park.
Our urban camping trip to Stanley Park was eventful! From sun to rain, thunder, lightning and back to sun. Amazing how positive everyone was despite the nighttime downpour!
We worked on our willow trays and net baskets today after spending time in our sit spots and noting new growth, bird sounds and impressions.
Last week Thursday we released our salmon fry at Stanley Park followed by a hike across the Lion’s Gate Bridge and ending up at Ambleside beach.
Monday afternoon headed back to Trillium to spend time harvesting materials for weaving later on in the week. We also learned to split willow branches and to make rope from the bark.
Last week we headed out to Strathcona Community Gardens with Matthew Kemshaw from EYA. We did a critter count and were surprised at how many critters we spied.
We’ve spent the last winter/early spring learning to weave paper, fences and baskets , and make maps and ropes.
