Lauraleigh Paul

Stanley Park Ecology Society
First Nations Ecology Programmer
Lauraleigh is of Coast Salish, Interior Salish, and Carrier First Nations descent.  In spring 2016, Lauraleigh joined SPES via her environmental monitoring practicum.  She passionately offers us her invaluable indigenous life experiences and integral teachings about Coast Salish historical interpretation and relevant present day interpretations to directly facilitate positive relationship building and ecological stewardship practices. She also generously shares a wealth of local flora and fauna use, teaching us how to nurture ourselves with nature, whether it be medicinal or practical, to harmonize our wellbeing with the natural world… and for this we raise our hands to express our “Coast Salish” appreciation.
