Salmon spawning in the middle of Vancouver?
What was thought to be impossible, Chum Salmon are once again spawning in Vancouver’s Still Creek. This is the second amazing year of spawning in Still Creek after an 80 year absence.
Partners in the restoration of Still Creek include Still Moon Arts Society, Evergreen, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, City of Vancouver, City of Burnaby, Metro Vancouver, the BC Government, and the land owners along the stream that have helped to daylight and restore sections of it over time.
For those unfamiliar, Still Creek is a long stream flowing across East Vancouver (starting at about 22nd and Refrew Streets) and ending in Central Burnaby.
