2016 Heritage Hunt Photo Contest

Feb 04, 2016

Thank you for participating in the 2016 Heritage Hunt Photo Contest. The contest is now officially closed. We will be announcing the winners soon! The photos, with full descriptions of their location and story, can be seen in our Facebook album.

Delta is rich in heritage. We are a community whose past is interlocked with our present and inspires our future. A traditional farming community, married to the ocean, with a strong relationship to the First Nations ancestors that cultivated life along the Fraser – this is how Delta proudly identifies itself.

We can acknowledge this past, talk about it in our lived experience, and even commemorate it with ceremonies and restorations. Nothing, however, really compares to seeing the people, places, and events, or experiencing the stories of those who lived during that time. This is where our civic pride comes from, and our connection to one another as residents of The Corporation of Delta.
