Volunteers needed to rebuild Mission salmon habitat

Takes place on Windebank Creek

Good news: salmon are returning home to B.C.’s rivers and streams after their long journey.

And you can help them arrive by volunteering in an event this Saturday, Nov. 5.

The Fraser Valley Conservancy is looking for energetic volunteers to help them clean up and maintain the Windebank Creek property in Mission for its Salmon in the City event.

This will involve invasive plant removal and some garbage clean up. They will also be planting some willow stakes and dogwood stakes. They will have pizza for lunch while listening to our guest speakers.

“Creating a healthy tree canopy along Windebank Creek in Mission, leads to a healthier stream for salmon to spawn in,” said a news release. “This stewardship will help create habitat for local wildlife who also use the area.”

If you’re able to, bring your own gloves and pruning shears; otherwise, they will be provided. Invasive plant removal and garbage clean up training will be provided on site at the beginning of the day. Shovels and training for willow staking will be provided.

The event runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and volunteers will be meeting at the west end of Logan Avenue, Mission (next to Embers BBQ House). Parking available along Logan Ave. and nearby parking lots.
