Volunteers from the Fraser Valley Conservancy were at Windebank Creek last weekend to hand build structures in the stream to enhance the fish habitat.
Rock weirs and wood complexes were built to enhance the creek where it runs through a conservancy property. In 2008, fish habitats in the creek were damaged by a development company that was later ordered to pay $80,000 in fines. In 2011 years later, the property was divided into two parcels, with one of them being gifted to the Conservancy. In addition to being fined, the development company was also ordered to pay for the property’s resoration.
The project was conducted in partnership with Fisheries and Oceans Canada, with funding from the Pacific Salmon Foundation.
