On Saturday, May 6, 2017, from 11 am – 3 pm, the Port Moody Ecological Society invites everyone to attend our very special Fingerling Festival.
A fun, free environmental festival at the Noons Creek Hatchery in Port Moody, located just across the walking bridge on the north side of the skating arena, 300 Ioco Road.
This iconic environmental festival, the largest of its kind in the Lower Mainland, provides an opportunity for children to help release thousands of young chum salmon into Noons Creek to help these fish begin their four-year journey at sea, and to visit the hatchery with its fish-rearing pond and restored wetland.
In the Port Moody Skating Arena, over 70 organizations will provide opportunities to learn more about community initiatives and environmental stewardship. Northwest Wildlife Preservation Society will be there, come by to see us!
The Port Moody Ecological Society is a 100% volunteer-operated teaching hatchery that raises Coho and Chum salmon, has been undertaking and teaching water quality testing for over 15 years, and provides community outreach and school programmes throughout the year.
