THE BIRDS, THE FEN & THE PACIFIC FLYWAYJoin Anne Murray (naturalist author), and Matt Christensen (Ducks Unlimited conservationist)for an informative talk on the Serpentine Wildlife Management Area and its importance as part of Fraser River Delta and Pacific Flyway migration routes. As part of Four Seasons at the Fen: Inspired by Vivaldi’s Four Seasons this Photography Exhibition & Community Event features images of the Serpentine Fen captured over the space of one calendar year by local photographer and arts advocate Barbara Cooper.
