Burnaby's Still Creek

This creek that runs into Burnaby Lake and on into the Brunette River was originally just a convenient place for industrial run-off, sludge and waste. Still Creek is gradually turning into what it was intended. It is a beautiful habitat for birds, water fowl, beaver and recently river otters. And after 80 years - in 2012 - spawning salmon have been spotted returning up the creek. Due to the hard work and determination of dedicated volunteers the Creek is a thriving corridor.

Thank you so, so much Tim. These little Sunday escapes mean a lot to me and they get me through the rest of my week.
