Annual Salmon Egg Take
Annual Thanksgiving Egg Take
October 8 and 9 10:00 - 3:30
This free, fun, family event is a great opportunity to get a close, hands-on, look at our local Chinook salmon. Some of the eggs collected will be taken to local schools where thousands of schoolchildren will also get hands-on experience raising these fish in their classrooms. Bring waders or gum boots, if you have some, and a lunch to enjoy on the scenic banks of the Shuswap River. We have waders to lend out but be forewarned that it is first come, first serve!
If you are interested in lending a hand or just observing, you will need to drive 25 km’s east of Enderby on Mabel Lake Rd. Continue 500m past the Interpretive Centre sign to the site on the river. You can’t miss it!
We are currently looking for volunteers who can help set up, check people in and clean up afterward.
Please call us at 250-838-0004 for more information.
