Community Engagement is a fundamental part of what we do as streamkeeper’s. We educate the public in a number of ways.
We share our work at our display table in Squamish on Earth Day and World Rivers Day. In addition as of July 2020 we have a new event planned called the False Creek Herring Festival in Vancouver on Canada Day, where will be showcasing our Pacific Herring restoration efforts.
We also enjoy assisting Rhonda O’Grady, the education director of the Squamish River Watershed Society, with their outdoor education program each spring for elementary students. Here we help with interpretive programs designed to teach children about salmon and herring ecosystems and habitat.
Social Media is a great resource we now use more actively to generate public awareness. Please follow us to stay up to date on the current work we do @squamish_streamkeepers and on our Facebook Page, Squamish Streamkeepers Howe Sound and False Creek.
