The project was part of a course offered by UBC's Creative Writing Department, with instructor Timothy Taylor. It was supported by UBC's SEEDS initiative. Additional support was offered by the Beaty Biodiversity Museum and the UBC Botanical Gardens. 


Many people walked around campus with me, sharing their knowledge and insights, or offered contributions and support from afar.  I am very grateful for the folowing people's insights, knowledge and kindness:
