Indigenous Forest Connections

Tour description: Talaysay Guides will create a calming, nurturing experience as we “open the door” to the medicine of the forest, inviting students to interact with nature in various meaningful and healing ways. Forest Connections, a land-based learning program, is designed for students to experience the land as a collective and in person. The students will be invited to engage in a series of activities providing an opportunity to connect to the forest with all the senses which inspires greater curiosity, creativity and connection with oneself.  

What to wear/bring: good walking shoes, appropriate layered clothing for the weather and a water bottle.  We emphasis dress to be warm. 

Who we are:  Talaysay Tours, owned by Candace and Larry Campo, Shíshálh (Sechelt) and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) First Nation, offer you an enriched cultural outdoor experience. Haida Bolton (Nature With Haida) is an associate company to Talaysay Tours.
