Event Description

Please: only for those who are NOT afraid of heights!

Meet at the lower level of the Marine Drive Canada Line station at 10:30 AM. You can bring your bike.

Since the beginning of the 19th century when Simon Fraser was the first white man to make a trip from inland to the river's mouth - the Fraser River has seen many changes. Listen to Terry tell the story of how the river has evolved to deal with the millions of humans who now live on its shores.

Terry will lead you over the Skytrain bridge from Marpole and South Vancouver to Richmond. Listen to tales about the North Arm of the Fraser River. Find out about the history, the fish stories and how a river works.

And then some more discussions: how do you envision this large now vacant piece of riverfront land looking in the next few years?

Terry Slack is a retired fisherman who grew up on the North Arm. He is a community historian, a naturalist, an activist and a salmon person. He has a never ending love o the North Arm of the Fraser River and has worked hard over the years to save the natural environment of the Fraser River Estuary and beaches around Vancouver.
