Return of the Salmon

Once frequent visitors to Still Creek,614747_635473749837838_56965197_o-1024x682 salmon have not been seen in Still Creek in recent years until 2012, where for the first time in 80 years, the chum have made it back to spawn. Since then, the salmon have been faithfully returning to spawn each year. The return of the salmon is a testament to the collaborative efforts of municipal governments, community organizations, and dedicated individuals who have worked to vastly improve the conditions of Still Creek over the years.

Every year now, we, along with other salmon enthusiasts, await the return of the salmon to the Renfrew-Collingwood bit of Still Creek at the end of October. The ideal viewing spot is the small wooden bridge by the Opus warehouse between Vancouver Film Studios and the back of Canadian Tire on Bentall Street.
