Ama Sqit Nsneknukwa7,

On September 1st, the River Bank Walk Surveys in the Upper Reaches of the Birkenhead River (aka spawning grounds) had 566 Chinook Salmon counted. 

Inez, Pala-Tena and Jeff conducted the survey – much appreciation for their time and efforts.

We have re-scheduled our first “Peak Spawn” River Bank Walk to Tuesday September 7 (instead of Monday Sept 6th).  My apologies for the miscommunication Monday is a Stat Holiday.

Our next River Bank Walks are scheduled for Tuesday September 7, Monday September 13 and the final “Peak Spawn” survey is Monday September 20th.  

We are seeking VOLUNTEERS for the “Peak Spawn” Surveys – please contact Maxine about your interest to participate.
