Chilliwack – On Saturday, the Watershed Watch Salmon Society hosted the Hope Slough Canoe Tour. This event is brought to you in part due to funding from the City of Chilliwack under the Neighbourhood Grant Program – Celebration and Activity Stream.
According to organizers they said they registered 30 canoes and 75 people. Timing was everything with the hail at the end of the tour and of course, the wind.
In collaboration with Friends of Camp-Hope Slough (#SOS Save Our Slough), Watershed Watch Salmon Society has been working hard to raise awareness of the values of the Camp and Hope waterways and the need to improve water quality & overall habitat of waterways impacted by flood infrastructure. Waterways like these provide important ecological habitat for wild pacific salmon such as the chinook salmon, integral to the survival of southern resident killer whales. They are also a great way to spend a day floating through Chilliwack.
