Cherry Scout Program
Starting in March each year, the VCBF Cherry Scout program will guide you to the best of cherry blossom viewing in Vancouver. Anyone can be a Cherry Scout, and you are invited to join us. All you need is curiosity and interest, and if you like taking photos, that's great too!
What do Cherry Scouts do?
Cherry scouting activities go on throughout the festival. Scouts volunteer city-wide to regularly observe and report on what's in bloom. Scouts find the blossoms, and their reports on the Blooming Now page herald the time for everyone to grab their cameras to capture the blossoms for themselves.
Learning to be a Cherry Scout
Tree Talks and Walks
The best way to learn about the trees - walk with an expert who will identify them for you and help you learn what to look for.
Scouts wanting information about the tools for reporting on the blossoms they find can check out Scout Corner.
