FACES OF THE FRASER: The Heart of the Fraser

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. Speakers last year included local historian Archie Miller, 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.

We invite you to join us for a presentation and talk by photographer and ‘Outdoor Storyteller’ Fernando Lessa!

Heart of the Fraser – Fernando 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.

Fernando will be presenting on his project “The Heart of the Fraser”, a photography series collected into a book through his collaboration with the BCIT Rivers Institute’s Ken Ashley. This work is a beautiful homage to the Lower Fraser River, featuring breathtaking views of the river and the life it supports.

From majestic views of the Fraser delta to snapshots of Salmon travelling upriver to spawn, his presentation is sure to delight and inspire audiences of all ages! This session will conclude with a Q&A session with light refreshments. We hope you will join us!
