Thank you to everyone who joined us for our April edition of ‘Faces of the Fraser’, featuring Fernando Lessa’s presentation on his documentary project ‘Urban Salmon’!
Fernando Lessa combines his skills as a photographer with a passion for outdoor activities and the natural world to document the important relationships between humankind and nature. His documentary film “Urban Salmon” (available online HERE) is a collaborative project created with the support of Take a Stand for Conservation and The Watershed Watch Salmon Society. The result of four years of photography and research, “Urban Salmon” highlights the existence and revival of wild pacific salmon in the Metro Vancouver Watershed.

Faces of the Fraser is an informal opportunity for the community to engage with people on the river to learn more about the role played by the mighty Fraser in our daily lives.
Speakers do a presentation on their topic, followed by a casual Q&A session with the audience. Previous speakers have included local historian Archie Miller, wildlife photographer Lessa, Fraser River Pilot Mike Armstrong and representatives from the Floating Home Association of BC.
The Fraser River Discovery Centre hosts and puts on a number of events each year, all designed to promote understanding and discussion of the living, working Fraser River.
Please note that in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all Faces of the Fraser events will be held digitally until further notice. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate these new circumstances together!
As a non-profit charitable organization, the Fraser River Discovery Centre relies on support from community members like yourselves to develop exhibits and programs that give voice to the stories of the Fraser River. Please consider making a donation to the Discovery Centre HERE, or in-person during your next visit. Thank you!
