I saw this sign from a distance as I was driving to the Pacific Spirit Park at the university. “Don’t tell me there’s a cougar roaming the park!” I thought. (Yes occasionally cougars come into Vancouver but usually further east).
However, up close I saw that this was a friendly COVID cougar, and so I cheerfully entered the forest.

yellow waterlily in Camosun Bog. Google map of UBC’s Pacific Spirit Park. It says ‘extensively forested’ (and it is) but I’m not sure why they used a greyish tone for most of it as it should really be all green except for the light grey developed area on the right-hand side.
