After being picked up at your accommodation, visit Van Dusen Botanical Garden, learn about plants from every corner of the world, from the lowlands to the highlands, from the rain forest to regions with deciduous species. Study both the fragile ecosystem and First Nations influence found here. Next, at Queen Elizabeth Park, stroll the manicured gardens of the Little Quarry and the Main Quarry. Watch the dancing water fountain. Take advantage of photo opps with the Photo Session, a bronze figurative sculpture of a man photographing three people, by J. Seward Johnson, Jr. At the next stop, the Museum of Anthropology, learn about world arts and cultures with a special emphasis on the First Nations peoples and other cultural communities of British Columbia.

See original carved totem poles, First Nations longhouses, and the works of masters such as Bill Reid and Susan Point.
