Wildlife Sightings

We've started a project on iNaturalist to catalogue the many species that call this watershed home, with the aim to document species within the geographic borders of Connaught Heights, in New Westminster, and the Fraser River to the east, Wiggins Street and Big Bend Farms to the south, Byrne Creek to the west, and Taylor Park in the north.

Our goal is to find the animals people least expect in their backyard, monitor endangered populations, track invasive species, and document our notable wildlife residents seen below. 

If you would like to become a member of our project, please reach out on iNaturalist, message us on Instagram, or send us an email and we will add you to the project.
