    Natural World Lecture Series 1: ADAM TAYLOR: Living Dinosaurs of Howe Sound.   Thought to have gone extinct 45 million years ago, glass sponge reefs were prevalent in the world’s oceans for hundreds of millions of years. Rediscovered off the coast of British Columbia in the late 1980’s they were dubbed ‘Living Dinosaurs’ and have attracted significant interest from the conservation and research communities. More recent discoveries of numerous small sponge reefs in Howe Sound are even more unique. Unlike the previously discovered reefs, which are located in hundreds if not thousands of feet of water, some of Howe Sound’s reefs occur in water shallow enough for scuba divers to visit and study first hand. Adam Taylor is a fourth generation resident of Bowen Island and has been diving the waters of Howe Sound for over 20 years. Through his volunteer positions with Underwater Council of British Columbia & Marine Life Sanctuary Society of British Columbia he has been helping lead Citizen Science and Marine Conservation efforts to document recently discovered glass sponge reefs in Howe Sound. Adam will discuss conservation efforts such as the recent expansion of Halkett Provincial Marine Park on Gambier Island and share images, videos and stories from scuba diving expeditions to discover and study these globally unique sponge reefs.

SQUAMISH EAGLE VIEWING Squamish is a Bird Watcher’s Paradise. Home to one of North America’s largest congregations of wintering bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) that can be viewed easily throughout the winter at several spots around town. Prime viewing usually happens at Eagle Run Park on Government Road in Brackendale where you’ll find an interpretive display of our eagles and the lifecycle of the chum salmon on which they feed. The Eagle Watch Interpreter Program, a volunteer-run community initiative, has been designed to help visitors better view and understand the eagles and salmon lifecycle. Volunteer interpreters are stationed at Eagle Run Park every weekend during the peak eagle-viewing months of November to January. Volunteer interpreters will be at the Eagle Run viewing shelter every weekend on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am – 3pm until January 2017 and throughout Christmas Week. Eagle Run dike is an accessible site: there is a ramp at the south end.

    As part of their winter migration, John Reischman & the Jaybirds will be touching down in Squamish for another stellar performance at the Eagle Eye Theatre in Squamish, BC on Friday, January 27th, 2017.     Years of European and North American tours, five critically acclaimed albums, two Juno nominations and two Canadian Folk Music Award nominations…little wonder, the buzz around John Reischman and The Jaybirds continues to grow. Like the mandolinist at its helm, the group fashions a stylish, elegant take on bluegrass that is at once innovative and unadorned, sophisticated and stripped-down, happily old-fashioned, yet unselfconsciously new. To see their live show is to believe it. A genial blend of story-telling and side-show humor provides the backdrop to their studied performance of original songs, instrumentals, and newly arranged traditional material. “A thoroughly professional ensemble with a rare ability to produce music that is simultaneously traditional and contemporary…the Jaybirds are a band that continues to hit on all cylinders.” -SingOut! $20 Tickets available @ EventBrite and at Billies Flower House in Squamish (38082 Cleveland Avenue – cash only please) The post John Reischman & The Jaybirds … with special guests appeared first on Sea to Sky Events Guide | Britannia Beach | Squamish | Whistler | Pemberton.
