Spawner Season 2015 – Stoney Creek Environment Committee


, ,

I’m taking this opportunity to share an e-mail about volunteer opportunities this 2015 spawner season (Chum and Coho Salmon) with Stoney Creek Environment Committee.
Contact Alan prior to attending.  Cancellations will occur if the weather is very wet and the creek is particularly turbulent.

This can be hard work. It requires certain protocol. Volunteers need a SCEC membership. For those who have good observation skills and don’t mind getting wet, taking part in the spawner survey can be very rewarding.

Hi, Streamkeepers.

Last week, Roger Dyer and Alan Russell counted 150 Chum and 4 Coho in Stoney Creek.

They could use some help to count fish this Saturday at 9:00 a.m. at the Jennifer Atchison Environmental Centre, 2730 Beaverbrook Crescent, on the north end of the Stoney Creek Community School grounds. Close to Lougheed Mall in northeast Burnaby.

SCEC is doing Good Work

The annual Great Salmon Send Off was pulled off without a hitch. And now SCEC is planning for the 2015 season ahead.  Please be patient the SCEC website loads very slow.    Here is a schedule for events at Burnaby Lake. WeedBusters SCEC always appreciates the work of volunteers.  If you only have time for a few commitments here is a great opportunity.  It’s also a lot of fun to know that your work will help establish diverse ecosystems.
