Bark stripped cedar, Cathedral Grove, Richard Boyce The ancient red cedar Thuja plicata specimen that survives in Cathedral Grove right represents a critical species to First Nations. In her book “Cedar, Tree of Life to the Northwest Coast Indians,” Hilary Stewart describes how the indigenous way of life is dependent on big cedar trees: They used the rot resistant wood for graceful dugout canoes to travel the coastal waters, massive post and beam houses in which to live, steambent boxes for storage, monumental carved poles to declare their lineage and dramatic dance masks to evoke the spirit world. Every part of the cedar had a use. The versatile inner bark they wove into intricately patterned mats and baskets, plied into rope and processed to make the soft, warm, yet water repellent clothing so well suited to the raincoast. Tough but flexible withes made lashing and heavy duty rope. The roots they wove into watertight baskets embellished with strong designs.

Neighbourhood greenways What are greenways? Many people think about greenways in the traditional sense of nature trails or pathways through natural areas or along waterfronts. In Vancouver, greenways are that and much more. Greenways in Vancouver are linear public corridors for pedestrians and cyclists that connect parks, nature reserves, cultural features, historic sites, neighbourhoods and retail areas.
Vancouver Greenways can be waterfront promenades, urban walks, environmental demonstration trails, heritage walks and nature trails. Greenways expand opportunities for urban recreation, provide alternate ways to move through the city, and enhance the experience of nature, community and city life. Who pays for greenways? City greenways City greenways are normally paid for from the City’s capital budget, the funds approved by Vancouver voters at municipal election time.
Other funds may come available through other levels of government programs, donations, non-profit agencies or business associations. The construction and maintenance of some greenways are negotiated through development approval processes at no cost to the City. Neighbourhood greenways Neighborhood greenways are partially funded by the City, with the community providing funds or in-kind contributions to their planning, construction and maintenance.
Public consultation Whenever greenway development is proposed, there will be significant consultation with residents along and adjacent to the routes prior to design development. Their final report, Greenways-Public Ways, extended the traditional definition of Greenways to include streets in the downtown – the Public Ways – and streets in Vancouver’s residential neighborhoods.
