Eagle Creek Streamkeepers Salmon Release 2017

Our friends, the Eagle Creek Streamkeepers will have their annual salmon release on Saturday, April 8.  We’ll have our information on display – Join us there!


Eagle Creek begins on Burnaby Mountain where it is fed by a large watershed, runs through Montecito and the nearby Squint Lake, through Burnaby Mountain Golf Course, culverted under Broadway and Lougheed Highway, runs through Charles Rummel Park, along Warner Loat Park to Burnaby Lake. Salmon are a native part of Eagle Creek’s ecosystem. The members of the Eagle Creek Streamkeeper Society protect, preserve and enhance the Eagle Creek watershed habitat, through environmental education and volunteer involvement.  Contact details are on the poster.
