Time Price
Sun, 1pm - 3pm
$5 per person or $15 per family

Few people know just how many different kinds of fish and invertebrates live year-round in the Lower
Fraser River, so this is a chance to see, learn about – and maybe even touch – some of them.
Dr. Richardson will lead us through what should be a fun and fascinating learning experience at Surrey Bend Regional Park.

Dr. Richardson is a professor at the University of British Columbia, where he studies how the
foodwebs of streams and riparian (streamside) areas function and how they are connected across the
water-land boundary. His research addresses questions about the biodiversity and ecosystem services of
stream and riparian area communities, and how various land-use practices affect those organisms and services.

Funded primarily by the Sitka Foundation, the new BioDiversity Speakers series hopes to increase public awareness and understanding of Fraser River biodiversity. Each of the sessions in the series will feature local biodiversity experts leading walking tours that provide a hands-on opportunity to learn about the biodiversity of the mighty River. Tickets to this event are only $5 per person or $15 per family.

Tickets can be purchased in advance at http://fraserriverdiscovery.org/biodiversity_1. For more information on the series, please call 604 521 8401 or go to http://fraserriverdiscovery.org/BioDiversity.
