Salmon Toss

Unfortunately the salmon toss has been cancelled for this year because of insufficient numbers in the spawning channels. Hopefully the return next year will be sufficient to allow us the opportunity to see that the nutrient cycle is continued.  Thank you to those who offered to volunteer on this project. If you would like to have your name on the roster for next year, please contact Neil Worboys, by email or 250-752-5568.

StreamTalk Newsletter

Please see the latest issue of StreamTalk, a newsletter published by Fisheries and Oceans Canada, in collaboration with stewardship groups like ours across BC and the Yukon.  You can always find an inspiring restoration or enhancement story and much more!

Meet Sophie - Our Newest Streamkeeper!

The newest member of the Streamkeeper team was recently outfitted with an official streamkeeper jacket, suitable for wet and low visibility conditions often encountered along stream banks.  Sophie, who lives with Don and Marilyn Lyster, is looking forward to accompanying the next field work party.
