Chilliwack scroll-saw artist Gary Johnson took some recent inspiration from a Chilliwack Times photograph of a bald eagle in a tree.
With permission from photographer Paul Henderson, Johnson took the image-which appeared on page one in the March 7 edition of the Times-and had a scroll saw pattern made by an expert.
He then took a piece of reclaimed wood from a monkey puzzle tree and created the scroll saw art shown in the photo here.
Johnson has a few dozen pieces of his work for sale on the Sts'ailes reserve along the Harrison River. Proceeds from the sale of the works for sale at Sts'ailes go towards protection of the local river.
The Harrison River has recently been included as the first Canadian waterway in a U.S.-based conservation strategy called the North American Salmon Stronghold Partnership.
