I think the poor air quality due to all the wildfires has kept many people from walking in the park. We walked in spite of it, in the relative coolness of the morning.
This tree had a house suitable for Wood Ducks to nest in although I've never seen any of those in this area. Guess it could be for any large bird.
Lots of Bind weed, pretty but so very invasive.
As we were walking the part of the trail near some residential areas we saw Police had their yellow tape blocking a street. News van was there as well as the police. Came home and watched the news to learn that an 18 year old man was shot but not fatally. Just last Friday another 18 year old was shot and killed in the middle of the afternoon as he drove on a main street of town. Both young men were known to police so no doubt this will be gang-related. So much of that around the lower mainland. It's very sad.
