Delta Naturalists Society is excited to announce the release of its six new brochures about wildlife in Delta, covering every variety of local animal and plant, large and small.
The brochure titles are:
- Animals in Delta
- Bugs in Delta
- Intertidal Life in Delta
- Butterflies & Moths in Delta
- Damselflies & Dragonflies in Delta
- Flowering Plants in Delta
Each brochure features a variety of interesting species that can be found locally, with full-colour pictures and key information about each one. The brochures are available free at your local Delta library, recreation centre, Delta City Hall, and other locations. You can also download them from the Delta Naturalists Society website, dncb.wordpress.com/dns-brochures/.
These brochures are a handy resource for nature-lovers, students, photographers, gardeners, and backyard naturalists. Each title offers information about our natural world in an easy-to-read, portable package.
Animals in Delta introduces some of Delta’s key mammals, reptiles, and amphibians, including deer, coyotes, moles and voles, bats, seals, and whales.
Bugs in Delta presents some of Delta’s spiders, bees, flies, grasshoppers, and other bugs.
Intertidal Life in Delta looks at life along our shores, such as clams, jellyfish, crabs, and seaweeds.
Butterflies & Moths in Delta illustrates 38 of the most likely members of these two families to be found in local habitats and gives details of what plant species attract them.
Damselflies & Dragonflies in Delta features 36 species of these fascinating and confusing flying insects, with flight times and tips on identifying male and female.
Flowering Plants in Delta focuses on the diversity of plants observed in Boundary Bay Regional Park and along the dykes, as well as elsewhere across Delta.
The brochure project is made possible by generous financial support from the City of Delta, Pacific Parklands Foundation, the BC Naturalists Foundation, and Delta Naturalists Society. These brochures join two previous publications, Birds in Delta and Experience Birding in Delta, and two in preparation: Woodland Plants in Delta and Fungi in Delta.
The brochures are all created by volunteers from Delta Naturalists Society, a federated member of BC Nature formed in 1988.Connect with the group on Facebook or at: www.dncb.wordpress.com.
