We will visit one of Surrey’s newest parks, Fegus Watershed Biodiversity Preserve,  which has special meaning for BC naturalists.  Along the 1 km easy walk is a dedicated rest area named in honour of beloved naturalists Al and Jude Grass.  The trail loop wanders through meadow, wetland and forest and Fergus Creek, an important tributary feeding the Little Campbell River.
Then we will walk along the Little Campbell River in Campbell Valley Regional Park through Douglas Fir and mixed forests to a viewing/resting area over the River.  We will be walking along wetlands where waterfowl and birds are often seen.
Bring your binoculars and lunch for a picnic.
