We had over 30 people join our March meeting (between in person and Zoom) to hear from Lynn Holden on World Heritage sites. Lynn took us on a journey across our landscapes to learn about a few of the sites. A World Heritage site is a landmark or area with legal protection by an international convention administered by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). World Heritage Sites are designated by UNESCO for having cultural, historical, scientific or other form of significance. She specifically focused on the “Geological” sights. Lynn has written a book in the timeframe of over 40 years, with pictures of her visits to each of the 20 Canadian sites. She brought copies of the book to the meeting for those who were in attendance who might like to purchase.
Sightings were sparse this time: a lone Snow Bunting in a back yard for 2 days (speculation is that the Bunting may be ill); 3 immature eagles – 2 relatively small, 1 relatively large – seen at the Narrows bridge – on ice, pouncing on each other; 1 Raven dumpster-diving at Westridge.
