Fernando Lessa at the Ecology Centre
Saturday, October 5, at 1pm. Cost: $9
For thousands of years, millions of salmon completed their epic oceanic journeys and returned home to the estuaries and rivers of early Vancouver. Much has changed in the last 150 years – most of the streams are gone and urban development and runoff impact the remaining salmon. Fernando Lessa, author and photographer of Urban Salmon, will take us on an incredible photographic journey underneath our local rivers to experience the natural beauty of our urban waterways and inspire us to protect these fragile ecosystems.
