John Lowman: Exhibition of Photography from the Conservation Area of Maplewood Flats

Saturday, February 15, 2020 to Friday May 8, 2020

John Lowman first visited Maplewood Flats in 1995. After that visit, he returned every week, first with binoculars, then with a spotting scope, and finally, on his 50th birthday, with a present to himself: a Canon EOS3 35 mm camera with a 500 mm telephoto lens.

“I’d taken pictures of birds as a child and I wanted to document the return of wildlife at Maplewood to help them protect the site.” he says.

Our current exhibit showcases over 250 photos that John took at Maplewood Flats from 2000-2006. From small tree frogs to majestic ospreys, this collection is “an indisputable record of the importance of this site”.

Winter hours – open to the public on weekends, 11am to 3pm, or by appointment. Visit @MaplewoodFlats on Facebook for upcoming events, or email ed@wildbirdtrust.org
