Our Society operates an Education Centre and Salmon Hatchery.   It is run by a group of dedicated volunteers working to preserve and enhance fish and wildlife habitats and promote environmental awareness and education to the public.

SALMON FESTIVAL - November 19, 2017

Join the 5,000 plus visitors from around the Lower Mainland who come out to celebrate and witness the return of thousands of salmon back to their birthplace to lay and fertilize their eggs. Spawning time is the end of these Coho & Chum salmon’s lifespan and the beginning of the next generation. 

This FREE family event provides visitors of all ages the opportunity to observe salmon up close and learn about their life cycle through educational displays, salmon dissections and in-stream demonstrations.  Come out for a day of exploring, experiencing and learning about the salmon and wildlife in a fish-bearing watershed.
