Volunteers are needed to assist the TRRS in counting fish.

Volunteers needed to help TRRS count salmon

The Tsolum River Restoration Society (TRRS) is expecting a big pink salmon run this year as a result of the record run in 2013.

The TRRS needs help counting all the fish and is organizing salmon walks and asking anyone who wants to help, to come to the Orientation and Safety Session on Saturday, Sept. 12, 10 a.m. at the Rees Bridge.

The meeting will entail going over the safety, proper wear and care and maintenance of chest waders at the Orientation and Safety Session.

Chest waders are required. The TRRS has a limited supply. “We will also need snorkel-swimmers,” said spokesperson Angela Spooner.

Counts start at 9 a.m. each Sunday starting Sept. 13 and take from three to four hours to complete. Each reach requires a good level of fitness and the TRRS asks that volunteers are at least five feet tall and fit a size seven wader (smallest size).

For more information call Spooner at 250-897-4670 or email trrs.projectcoord@gmail.com.
