The Burnaby Festival of Learning is proud to present The Flora & Fauna of Deer Lake, hosted by Burnaby Village Museum!

For any in-person events, we will be following all safety protocols for events held in a City of Burnaby facility.

Artist John Preissl, Sto:lo from Leq’a:mel First Nation with ancestry in Squamish and Katzie Nation will lead a tour around Deer Lake, talking about the ecosystem, the waterways and the flora and fauna that are Indigenous to this area. John will share stories of the land, the people and of his family and their importance in creating a stronger relationship to each other and to the world around us.

We will end the tour at the Indigenous Learning House located inside the Burnaby Village Museum for some light refreshments and reflection.

The maximum number of participants is 12, so register early. Please note there is an age requirement of 10 years old and up.


John Preissl, is a Sto:lo water and land defender, stream-keeper, wildlife photographer, and storyteller.
