Get the latest details on the massive Fraser River slide that endangered thousands of migrating salmon — and learn about the Port Moody Ecological Society — during the group’s annual general meeting Feb. 19 at the Port Moody recreation complex.
The AGM guest speaker is Leander McCabe of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (Pacific Region) who will talk about the challenges and solutions to the physical barrier, located north of Lillooet on the Fraser River.
Members of the PMES, which operates the Noons Creek Hatchery and hosts the popular Fingerling Festival on the first Saturday in May, will also elect a board for the coming year and current board members will provide an overview of 2019 activities.
The AGM will be held in Multi-Purpose Room #2 (upstairs) in the rec centre (300 Ioco Rd.).
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and refreshments will be served.
The meeting is free to attend and members of the public are welcome.
New society memberships are encouraged and will be taken on the night. Existing PMES members are reminded that they cannot stand or vote for new board positions if their membership has not been renewed.
Membership renewals will be taken at the meeting.
