Children will have the opportunity to release Coho salmon into MacDonald Creek and learn more about the life cycle of fish.
The annual Adopt-a-Fish event will take place at West Vancouver’s Memorial Park.
Starting at 11 a.m., kids can pick up their Salmon Adoption Certificate for the Coho Society of the North Shore booth located outside West Vancouver Memorial Library then cross the street to release a juvenile salmon into the creek to begin its life in the wild.
Members of the West Vancouver Streamkeeper Society will be on hand to answer questions, provide information and assist with the release of the fish, which are raised by Department of Fisheries and Oceans staff at the Capilano River Hatchery.
Adopt-a-Fish is open to elementary-aged school children and their families and will proceed rain or shine. No registration is required.
