Stewards of Salmon and Trout

Fish lovers unite! Use your interest in helping Surrey's streams be healthy places for salmon and trout to live.  You'll become what we call a 'stream steward', which is a great person that does their part to care for the natural environment.  There are a variety of programs and activities that you can get involved in to explore this resource we have in Surrey.  Our programs tackle invasive plants, do streamside planting and help spread the word on everything from storm drain pollution to what types of salmon and trout live in Surrey. There are also free events and challenges on the Watershed Wise Public Programs webpage that you can participate in which can help you and the community find simple ways to help preserve salmon habitat. 

Coho Crew

A volunteer program that gets you linked up to activities in the City that supports fish populations in the creeks. Many activities held at the Tynehead Hatchery as well as the Little Campbell Hatchery.  You must be over 14 to register in this program (but there are many activities throughout the year that are family firendly where registered Coho Crew folks can bring their kids!). Volunteer positions are available all year round.

Salmon Habitat Restoration Program (SHaRP)

A student employment program that employs post-secondary and high school students full-time in the summer.  Teams of students achieve restoration projects throughout the City and participate in community education events that helps promotes salmon care and how to maintain healthy fish habitat in the City.
