CRAB PARK & THE NEST PROJECT Walking Tour with Greg Ferguson & Don Larson for 7th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival in Vancouver on Thursday Nov 4, 2010

Walking Tour
CRAB PARK & THE NEST PROJECT
with Greg Ferguson & Don Larson
Thursday November 4, 4:30pm-6pm

Meet at Wendy Poole Park, NW corner of Main & Alexander
Environmental artist Sharon Kallis spent the summer in workshops with community members to create woven sculptures for the marsh pond located in CRAB Park. They wove perches and protection for park birds and helped to make the area more livable for birds in the DTES, www.crabparknest.wordpress.com. As they worked they learned about the history and stories of the favourite waterfront from Don Larson, activist and founder of CRAB Water for Life Society. Led by Don’s persistence in the mid-80s, determined residents set up a tent-city for almost three months to fight for the right to build a park in the DTES. Their persistence eventually paid off and we celebrate the results of their activism in this natural jewel of a park. Don and Greg Ferguson, biologist, will lead a walking tour of the park history, ecology, and various memorials and art works. $10 for non-residents, pay what you can for local residents
