Starting at the Georgia Street entrance to Stanley Park where Chilco Street and Alberni Street meet, at the grove of ‘Akebono’ cherry trees, Nina will lead participants through ten locations. Along the way, she will point out ‘Somei-yoshino’ and ‘Shirotae’ cherry trees. Participants will walk along the Promenade and stand in the shade of a fernleaf beech, a tree with an enormous canopy. The walk goes through the two parts of the Shakespeare Garden and through the Air Force Garden of Remembrance, and ends at the ‘Ojochin’ sentinel tree at the Japanese-Canadian War Memorial. The walk will take about an hour and a half.
