The SCCP, in partnership with the Pender Harbour Wildlife Society, is presenting a talk about Great Blue Herons with Ross Vennesland. With their striking presence either as statues along the shoreline or flying overhead, there is no doubt that the Great Blue Heron is an iconic bird of our coastline. Learn about the natural history of these birds, why they are considered to be ‘at risk’ and what is being done to help. Ross Vennesland began studying herons through his graduate studies at SFU. He is currently a Species Conservation Specialist for Parks Canada and an active member of the BC Heron Working Group. This presentation, open to everyone, will be followed by the PHWS's annual general meeting. Refreshments will be served.
