The FOUP-RBCM Beach Seine on June 25, 2017 was a very popular family activity. Wiley Thomas, FOUP Steering Committee Member, sends the following photos.
The Friends of Uplands Park invites the community members to join researchers from the Royal BC Museum, as they conduct a morning beach seine at Willows Beach. As many as 20 species of fish, crabs, shrimp, and other invertebrates will be brought in using a large net, so everyone will get an up-close look at what lives beneath the waves. A family friendly event.
Meet at Willows Beach. From Estevan, turn left onto Esplanade and drive toward the north end of the beach. Park on the right near the large white Royal BC Museum van. Friends of Uplands Park will have small nets and containers to help you collect creatures. Dress appropriately with water shoes or rubber boots. Donations to the Royal BC Museum are greatly appreciated.
