Major Grant from Pacific Salmon Foundation

Share This Post

The Mossom Creek Hatchery and Education rebuild project has made considerable progress over the past 10 months.  All levels of government, non-profit organizations, corporations, local businesses and extraordinary citizens have helped make our speedy recovery possible.

Every great project needs a strong start.  Our strong start came in early spring when the Pacific Salmon Foundation awarded us a $100,000 grant towards the construction of the new building.  This seed money gave us the confidence to move forward with a strong community vision.

We were pleased to do a formal presentation with Terry Tebb and Jim Shinkewski of the Pacific Salmon Foundation in mid July at our ground breaking ceremony.  We’ve made such great progress since then and want to recognize the kickstart this sizable grant has provided.  (related story, click here)
