The Stanley Park Hollow Tree: The Community & the Conservation of an Important Historical Artifact
Thursday, September 18, 2008 | 7:00pm to 9:30pm
Location: Vancouver Museum, 1100 Chestnut Street
Admission: $5.00; Heritage Vancouver Members free

Join Harold Kalman and Meg Stanley of the Stanley Park Hollow Tree Conservation Society (SPHTCS) for an evening of conversation on how the community has taken on the conservation of the Stanley Park Hollow Tree. Kalman and Stanley will present fascinating information on the history and significance of the Hollow Tree, the reversal of the Park's Board decision to demolish the tree, the process that led to Heritage Vancouver and the SPHTCS forming an alliance to conserve this historical artifact and the techniques proposed for its conservation. This will be followed by ample time for discussion and networking. For more information about the Hollow Tree visit www.savethehollowtree.com.

The Stanley Park Hollow Tree is a cultural heritage resource listed on the Vancouver Heritage Register and recognized by Parks Canada as a Level One Cultural Resource in the Commemorative Integrity Statement for Stanley Park National Historic Site. The Stanley Park Hollow Tree has a special place in the memories of many Vancouverites.

We invite you to e-mail Heritage Vancouver info@heritagevancouver.org with a copy of your favourite photo with a one or two line description of your memories of this special place and we will post a selection on our website.
