TRRS offers watershed walk for Rivers Day

Even though it is an exceptionally low water year the pink salmon have returned to the Tsolum River right on time and in record numbers.

Early salmon counts confirm that the run is significant for its size and because these fish came from eggs laid in the river in 2013 during the largest pink salmon return since 1958, and not from our 14-year pink hatchery program. These are wild fish, making this possibly the best run in the TRRS records, which go back to 1935.

Join the TRRS on Sunday, Sept. 27 at 2 p.m. for a nature walk starting in the Vanier Garry Oak Forest, and along Towhee Creek to its confluence with the Tsolum River on the CV Exhibition Grounds, where the completed summer 2015 river restoration project can be viewed. Meet at the CV Sports Centre at the Vanier end of the parking lot. The walk will touch on many aspects of this special river highlighting its history, challenges, partnerships and recovery.

Rivers Day celebrates waterways, highlights their importance to ecological health and generates public awareness about this important natural resource.
