The BC Wildlife Federation (BCWF) 's Fish Habitat Restoration and Education program presents an opportunity for everyone to dive into B.C.'s underwater world this weekend on Sept. 23 and 24.
The Delta Fish Habitat Stewardship Workshop is a two-day interactive workshop that includes lessons on the history and physiologies of B.C.'s aquatic inhabitants and many practical activities, such as identifying indigenous fish.
The program will travel to streams of the local communities and provide instructions on sampling stream health, mapping, and monitoring. Participants will understand the unique needs of each area, as the workshop blends hands-on fieldwork with informative presentations to provide participants with the technical skill set required to be effective stewards of their local streams.
Through this workshop, participants may gain technical skills and bridge connections with local stewardship groups, strengthening the effort to protect B.C.'s freshwater ecosystems.
This weekend’s workshop is in Cory Drive Park (11700 Cory Dr.) from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
To register, interested participants can visit: https://bcwf.bc.ca/fish-habitat-restoration-education/or email Haiden at: firstname.lastname@example.org to secure their spot. Availability is limited.
