Sigh. Fireworks aftermath in Ron McLean Park in south #Burnaby.
This disregard for the ‘hood has been going on for years every Halloween.
Not only do these inconsiderate folks irritate the neighbourhood for hours, freak out pets, and terrorize wildlife, they always leave a mess behind.
Great to see a Barred Owl and a Pileated Woodpecker on our patrol for spawning salmon on Byrne Creek in SE #Burnaby.
It was also fun showing a new volunteer where and how we patrol for spawning salmon. We assessed one female chum that was fully spawned, and saw a couple of live chum.
The female chum was completely spawned out with almost no eggs left. That’s wonderful to see!
NOTE: It’s illegal to interfere with spawning salmon. Streamkeepers have training and permission to monitor returning salmon, and assess them for species, sex, size, and spawning status after they die.
