Saturna Island BBQ & Salmon Education Event

September 9 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Celebrate the last lazy days of summer at a beach, listening to the latest news from the Lyall Creek Salmon Project, and sharing a Barbeque meal.  At Thompson Park (Taylor Point), 11:30 am.

A number of years ago a group of residents decided to help bring chum salmon back to Lyall Creek. With support from Fisheries and Oceans Canada and Parks Canada, volunteers began a program to incubate chum eggs in Lyall Creek and then release the young salmon into the ocean each spring. An impassable culvert was replaced, in-stream and riparian area restored. Local elementary school children participate in stocking the creek each year with salmon fry.  Lyall Creek is considered to be a highly successful benchmark for habitat restoration in the region.
