On Sunday May 19th, our volunteers were delighted to host a tour for the Mayor and Council of the City of Port Moody. First they visited Mossom Creek Hatchery itself which is located in Mossom Creek Park, Port Moody, adjacent to Bert Flynn Park. At the hatchery they were introduced to this year’s coho fry and also to the coho smolts that we will be releasing to the ocean in a week after a short stint in the sea pens. Later they went on a guided walk of the forested areas nearby. It was a beautiful day and the mature forest was a glowing green. We walked on deer trails and encountered a provincially blue-listed Pacific Tailed Frog. We saw the steep ravine area which is the proposed crossing for the David Avenue extension.
The team at Salmon Forest are piloting a Forest School Camp at Mossom Creek! Starting this spring, the camp is geared towards children from Kindergarten
