The Land Guardians program is a partnership with the Urban Native Youth Association’s Cedar Walk and Aries alternate school programs for Indigenous youth. Through hands-on activities guided by Indigenous Elders, Knowledge Keepers, and EYA facilitators, youth build relations, make medicines and prepare foods with native plants of Coast Salish territories. They also help to steward the environment by growing native plants from seed to seed, removing invasive plants, restoring habitat, and monitoring wildlife. Through the program, youth have an opportunity to connect with nature and cultural teachings while building life skills and growing as leaders in their communities.
The Land Guardians program is a school partnership program not open for registration.
