Volunteering at Canada Day in SE Burnaby

Despite some iffy weather forecasts, it turned out to be a lovely Canada Day in Ron McLean Park in SE Burnaby today. Byrne Creek Streamkeepers had our booth up, with aquatic bugs for kids to view, and we had a steady flow of interested folks throughout the event. Kudos to City of Burnaby staff who had the event running like clockwork, as usual. Job well done.
