Reifel Bird Sanctuary, August 2016

In August we visited the Reifel Bird Sanctuary in Delta, BC. The sanctuary is a beautiful, peaceful spot nearly 300 hectares in size, with walking trails passing through wetlands and marshes. There’s an observation tower you can climb for incredible views, and you can purchase birdseed from the office to feed the feathered inhabitants. If you’re patient and lucky, a bird might eat from your hand!

Paths are level and wheelchair accessible. For more information about the bird sanctuary, visit their website.

Note: The overhead shot of the heron was taken by my ten-year-old son. Click on images to see a larger version.

Maplewood Farm, North Vancouver, July 2016

In July I visited Maplewood Farm in North Vancouver with my children. There are many types of animals to see on the farm, including varieties of birds, chickens, rabbits, ponies, a donkey, horses, pigs, sheep, goats, and a guinea pig. Here are a few of the animals that we saw. The highlight of our day was frolicking with the goats!

For more information about the farm, visit their website.
