Migratory birds are featured at this month’s Super Saturdays event at Fraser River Discovery Centre.

At the May 27 Super Saturdays event, Fraser River Discovery Centre will focus is on the migratory birds that are returning to the Fraser River this spring.

“From gulls to sandpipers, eagles to plovers, many species of birds rely on the Fraser watershed as a source of food and shelter,” said Stephen Bruyneel, FRDC’s director of external relations and development. “Together they form a key part of the amazing biodiversity that exists along the mighty Fraser River.”

Fraser River Discovery Centre staff will be on hand to help guests discover more about these birds and how they all survive in this month’s Super Saturday, including: exploring why animals migrate; following the flight path of local migratory bird species; and learning how so many bird species can survive here at once.

Super Saturdays, a regular series of public programs that celebrate the living, working Fraser River, take place on the last Saturday of the month at the Fraser River Discovery Centre. Each Super Saturdays is focused on a different Fraser River topic – with public programs geared toward family-friendly activities.

Located at 788 Quayside Dr. on New Westminster’s waterfront, Fraser River Discovery Centre offers a variety of programs and exhibits related to various aspects of the Mighty Fraser.
