“This Halloween, we are celebrating Halloween by taking a closer look at one of the spookier bird species of the Fraser River – the owl,” said Stephen Bruyneel, director of external relations and development. “Come and join us to learn fiendishly fascinating facts about some of the owls that live in the Fraser Basin. You can also transform a pumpkin into the coolest owl in town, create a personalized Halloween goodie bag and learn how to make some tasty treats for the Fraser’s birds that you can hang up outside your home.”

According to FRDC, the Fraser watershed is home to a wide variety of owl species. While people may not see these nocturnal hunters very often, they play a critical role in maintaining the health and balance of our riverside ecosystems by controlling rodent and bird populations.

Super Saturday is on Saturday, Oct. 31 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Fraser River Discovery Centre, 788 Quayside Dr. It’s free with paid admission to the centre, which has a variety of exhibits, hands-on attractions and displays.

COVID-19 safety protocols are in place, so please pre-register at www.tinyurl.com/FRDCOwl.
