Reviving our Local Salmon Habitat in North Vancouver

Chris Stoicheff, a dedicated member of Paper Excellence’s Government Relation’s team recently volunteered in a meaningful event dedicated to Salmon Habitat Restoration. It was a collaborative event orchestrated by the Pacific Salmon Foundation, District of North Vancouver, and North Shore Streamkeepers. The objective of this joint effort was to restore the salmon habitat and spawning streams in Lynn Creek, North Vancouver.

Throughout the event, participants learned about the process of refurbishing habitat for salmon. They engaged in tree planting along the riverbank to increase shade, effectively lowering the temperature in the streams to improve spawning conditions. Additionally, they cleared the stream from debris making it a more sustainable environment for the freshwater marine.

Pacific Salmon Foundation is a nonprofit environmental organization dedicated to the conservation and restoration of wild Pacific salmon and their habitats in British Columbia and the Yukon. They work with all members of the ‘salmon community’ to advance the collective efforts, promote awareness of this keystone species, and guide the sustainable future of wild Pacific salmon and their habitat. As a vocal advocate for salmon, PSF helps action priorities that support the conservation of this vital ecological resource.
