The 11th annual Osprey Festival is taking place throughout the Conservation Area at Maplewood Flats. They are very excited to bring together a community of nature lovers from around the corner and across Coast Salish Territory.
The event will feature workshops, guided walks, various speakers, live music, children’s entertainment, and food. Everyone is encouraged to come out, as they hope to welcome many first-timers from local neighbourhoods around Burrard Inlet. This is an opportunity to come inside the Corrigan Nature House for education workshops and speakers and photography displays, wander the area for nature walks, and visit three stations at Otter Point, Osprey Point and the Mudflats. We will have participation from the Tsleil-Waututh Nation, District of North Vancouver, and many environmental groups from the region.
If you’re interested in learning about traditional Coast Salish use of plants they will have ethnobotanists revealing names and information about the 320 acre site. If you’d like to observe birds and other wildlife at Maplewood Flats, we will have scopes and observation stations set up at the three principal locations. Here you can observe the critters that call Maplewood Flats home, and get advice from skilled birders and naturalists who will be available to help at all of the stations.
Bring a camera of your own as well if you are interested in taking part in a photography workshop! If you snap a great shot, let us know and it may be featured on our social media outlets or in future editions of the Wingspan magazine!
Join us on Saturday, July 22nd for this free public event that showcases the wild birds we strive to protect here in Burrard Inlet.
