Streamkeeper volunteers planted a dozen cedars provided by Burnaby Parks. We placed half a dozen in the Byrne Creek artificial spawning habitat, and half a dozen along the lower ravine trail. Great fun getting cold and wet! 🙂
We unrolled the paper tubes we’d set out over the summer, and opened the unit with plastic trays.
Excited to not only “preserve our capital” but notch a “profit” of a dozen cocoons. Our location in a townhouse with only a high balcony on which to set out bee houses is not the best, so we were happy with this year’s results!
Paper tubes rolled from the Burnaby Now proved to be much more attractive than plastic trays.
The supervisor was having trouble seeing the action and was meowking indignantly around our feet, so we eventually let her on the table, where she soon fell asleep .
Sometimes I like the soft, muted colours of an overcast day. Byrne Creek Ravine Park in SE Burnaby, BC. These were taken following a spawner patrol in which volunteer streamkeepers spotted our first salmon returning to spawn — several coho!
