The ECOreport reposts the story of a waterway’s restoration, Chum Salmon Returning To Still Creek
A compilation taken from the City of Vancouver & Rivers Institute at BCIT
By many estimates it has been nearly 80 years since salmon last made the journey from the Fraser River up the Brunette River and into Still Creek to spawn. For over 10 years, the Still Creek Enhancement Program has been working on rehabilitating and daylighting sections of one of Vancouver’s remaining visible streams. The hard work has paid off because, for the fourth year in a row, chum salmon are returning to Still Creek.
