Fonds consists of materials collected by Martin Keeley, and others, during his time as founder/director of the Point Roberts Heron Preservation Committe, member of the Fraser for Life Communications Society, executive director of the Friends of Boundary Bay, and executive member of the Boundary Bay Conservation Committee. The materials were generated from both his home in Point Roberts as well as the offices in Ladner, B.C. and Point Roberts, Washington.
Textual materials include Corporation of Delta reports, court case documents, transfer of lease agreements, other reports, notes, correspondence (both to and from), letters, emails, newsletters, publications, studies, proposals, brochures, notices, membership information, financial information, meeting minutes, questionnaires, application forms, workshop brochures, newspaper articles and other various materials that Martin Keeley or others may have thought pertained to a research interest or their organizations. The newspaper articles have been removed from the textual material and placed in the Martin Keeley and Friends of Boundary Bay Newspaper Clippings Binders. These binders can be found on the Reference Library bookshelves.
Audiovisual media materials include VHS, videocassettes for a camera recorder, cassette tapes and reel-to-reel format audio. Photograph materials include photograph negatives, prints, transparencies and contact sheets. The material spans many different topics, such as administrative records, local development, airport development, golf course development, wildlife and wildlife protection, environmental concerns and impacts for the region, local areas of concern (Boundary Bay and Point Roberts), as well as photographs of events relating to, attended by or hosted by the various organizations.
