You’re invited to the third Youth and Ecological Restoration Program (YER) tours at 3300 Fraser Rd. this Friday at 11:30 a.m.

The Millard Piercy Watershed Stewards (MPWS) restored a stream channel on Millard Creek to enhance fisheries habitat. MPWS is partnering with YER to monitor fish activity in the channel and educate the public about the results.

Two youth will lead the tour for completion of YER phase two (www.youthecology.ca).

Earlier in the week they will be involved with a marked recapture study to assess fish populations and document aquatic habitat in the side channel for MPWS (www.millardpiercy.org).

These youth represent the future environmental stewards of Millard Creek and other watersheds in our community.

Come out to the public education tour and learn about the watershed through the eyes of two youth who will be sharing their work experience with you.

Please park either along the first grassy roadway inside the property on the left or the gravel parking area on the left before the farm gate.

For more information, contact Wendy Kotilla at 250-336-8487 or wkotilla@shaw.ca.
