Salmon about to hit the stream in Burnaby

April 3, 2017 by  

Each year, young salmon set of from Burnaby’s rivers and creeks headed for the sea, and soon, thanks to the support of the local community, fish that have been released in Stoney Creek will be joining them.

The Stoney Creek Environmental Committee will be hosting its Great Salmon Send Off, during which salmon fry will be released into the water to help ensure the long term health of the species. Along with he fish release, there will be entertainment, displays and exhibits, crafts and environmentally themed activities. A printer can supply the organization that hosts and event like this with an assortment of promotional products, such as t-shirts, lanyards, coffee mugs and more that can aid it in getting its message out.

According to the event’s organizers, the goal of the day will be to not only ensure that the stream has a healthy stock of fish, but to also help raise awareness about the importance of the body of water and steps people can take in their own lives to protect both it and the rest of the environment as a whole. It also provides an opportunity for people to meet their neighbors and strengthen the community.

The Great Salmon Send Off and neighborhood fair will take place at 2740 Beaverbrook Crescent in Burnaby. All are welcome, and additional details have been made available on the event’s Facebook page.
