Wetlands volunteers needed Saturday

The Fraser Valley Watersheds Coalition is holding a Rivers' Day work bee

Fraser Valley Watersheds Coalition needs volunteers for a Rivers’ Day work bee, Sept. 29 at Silverdale Wetlands.

They will be building a fence, clipping blackberry bushes, and putting wire beaver guards around trees. Work starts at 10 a.m. Bring gloves and hand pruners if you have them, and dress for the weather. This is a great chance to see the new in-stream habitat restoration work that is being completed this week, learn more about the site and possibly see chum salmon spawning.

Turn north off Lougheed Highway onto Nelson Street, keep right at the junction, and the road becomes Silverdale Avenue. The wetlands’ entrance is 400 metres down on the right. Walk about 300 m up the trail to the salmon viewing platform.

Contact Rachel Drennan at rachel@fvwc.ca or 604-791-2235 for more information.
