We Speak with Trees

JUNE 27 TO 30

$220 + GST

1:30 PM TO 4:30 PM

“I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees. I speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues. And I am asking you, sir, at the top of my lungs. Oh please do not cut down another one.” Dr. Seuss, The Lorax.

Taking advantage of our beautiful placement between sea sky and forest, this summer program will both literally and figuratively root us in the landscape. Across the week participants will visit areas of interest, from Jericho beach to Camosun bog, the endowment lands and beyond. Notepad and pen in hand, they’ll craft entries in comprehensive eco-tree diaries chronicling their learning. Students will be encouraged to follow any path their imagination forges, conjuring their own ideas of trees and how they might look in the future. They will pause to dive deeper into how flora communicate, viewing snippets of the documentary Judi Dench: My Passion for Trees across the week. We’ll also take photographs to later embellish with acrylic paint, crafting an artistic representation of our week.
