Rene Savenye Area, Blackie Spit Park, B.C., Canada

The Savenye Environmentally Sensitive Area
is part of Blackie Spit Park in Surrey, BC,
and is dedicated to Rene Savenye,
a passionate naturalist who
did a lot of work at Blackie Spit.
Rene was a science teacher in
Surrey, BC, and passed on his
love of nature and all things wild
to his students.
He also discovered the second
oldest fossilized march fly in the
world, which is now housed at
Simon Fraser University.
It's believed to be 45 million years old.
The area is ephemeral and
hauntingly beautiful.
I can't help but think how Mr. Savenye
would have loved the
sights and sounds here on this
life thriving spring day.
