BAG Talks:
Bob Turner 2: Howe Sound: In Recovery, Still Incredible.

The lands and waters of Howe Sound are a rich mosaic of natural wonders. As Canada’s most accessible fiord, its diverse mountains, rivers, shorelines and ocean waters host rich ecosystems and offer recreational and educational opportunities unique in British Columbia. Encouraging environmental trends – including the return of herring, dolphin, and whales - show that Howe Sound is recovering from past industrial damage. This talk celebrates the wonders of this remarkable natural home and calls us to work on behalf of its fragile recovery.

Dr. Bob Turner is a retired scientist with the Geological Survey of Canada and author of Vancouver, City on the Edge, a popular geological guide to the Vancouver region and Sea to Sky GeoTour - Geology and Landscapes Along Highway 99 from Vancouver to Whistler. He is a long time resident of Bowen Island where he has served as both a municipal councillor and mayor. For the past 25 years he has explored with delight the mountains, forests, and waters of the Howe Sound region.

From wakes to weddings, music festivals to midnight jam sessions, 5 on a string creates the energy and drive that only straight ahead Bluegrass can. Their music is mostly traditional style Bluegrass repertoire with a few original tunes and the occasional foray into old style country music like Merle Haggard and even one from Fats Domino!  Founded in September 1989 their home base has always been in Port Moody but over the years the band has played many of the northwest’s major bluegrass festivals and continues with this summer’s “True North Fraser Bluegrass Festival” Labor Day weekend in Maple Ridge.
