In December of 2006, Stanley Park was struck by a major windstorm. The storm resulted in substantial disturbance, felling over 15,000 trees in the Park. Extensive ecological restoration was needed and accomplished through partnerships and in-kind support. Michel Desrochers, Manager of Capital Planning & Strategy with the City of Vancouver, will present on the challenges, successes and lessons learned in this substantial restoration work.

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
