The Hyde Creek Watershed Society is located in Port Coquitlam, B.C. This volunteer organization operates a small Salmon Hatchery and provides Educational Programs for local schools as well as an annual Salmon Festival. With few exceptions, the images appearing in this blog are mine as is the blog.
Recorded herein are memories stretching back to 2008 - fun times with wonderful people.

A teacher from a local elementary school came by and
gave the society a quilt that was made by her students a while back. Each square was made by a different student but sewn together they tell the life story of Salmon.
Time for the Spring ponded Salmon weigh with plenty of volunteers to help.
Almost 11,000 young Coho in the pond and we need an average weight per fish to decide how much fish food to give them in the future. These fish weighs take place every two months.
After we collect the fish from the pond they are put in a bucket and then weighted.
Another task completed and a job well done.
Already another project could be in the planning stages for next week. There is always something to do
