The 19th annual Hyde Creek Salmon Festival was held yesterday (Sunday) in Port Coquitlam at the Hyde Creek Hatchery and nearby Hyde Creek recreation centre.
There were hands-on displays where children and adults could get up-close with live salmon and even, thanks the Orphaned Wildlife Society, an eagle.
As well, there was entertainment, including performances by the Cutie Circle ukulele group.
Hyde Creek Watershed Society, which operates the hatchery, is always looking for volunteers to assist with programs and operations.
The group is made up of volunteers of all ages who donate time that will fit their schedules — a few hours a month would benefit this group. If you have an interest in helping, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
