For me, one of the highlights of visiting Mary's Point is my frequent spontaneous meetings with David. As we talk, I learn more about the birds, plants and tides... and I'm cheered by his laughter and big smile.
David helped me years ago when I found an injured owl on the dykes. He swiftly and fearlessly bundled up the hissing bird that tried to bite and claw him. He released the bird in the aviary at his house and invited my friend and me in for tea and cake. As we talked, I gained a greater understanding and appreciation for the place I now call home.
We invite readers to share their stories about David Christie and his impact on our environment and community. Please send these to info@ConnectingAlbertCounty.org.
