Check in at the Tsqilye building in the Byron Louie Memorial Park, 301 Mission Road.

Berries collected will be transformed into delicious jams, jellies, teas, and more, for Elders and people-in-need in the community, and for traditional gift-giving at future cultural events. Let the berry picking begin!
