COLLABORATIVE CHANGE BREAKOUT: Planting Cottonwoods to Cultivate Cross-Cultural Bonds

November 23, 2017
3:30 pm  -  3:40 pm

The Black Cottonwood Ecosystem is among the rarest of plant communities in the Southern Interior of B.C., providing crucial habitat for a range of plant and animal species. For thousands of years, Syilx Okanagan peoples made efficient use of the whole cottonwood tree. The significance of the cottonwood (mulx) continues to be taught today.

Our cross-cultural Canada 150 project, engages youth in on-the-land experiences that teach us about our individual and collective roles and responsibilities, caring for one another, and stewarding the land for current and future generations. Partners include the RDOS, the En’owkin Centre, ONA, School Districts, and UBC.
