Surrey has approximately 1,400 kilometres of urban watercourses running through its neighbourhoods, parklands and alongside roads. These streams provide spawning and rearing habitat for five species of salmon and trout, and a variety of wildlife. Visit the streams at the right time of the year and you will luck out by seeing spawning salmon returning to their home streams from their long journey in the Pacific Ocean. In one season, over 900 spawning Chum salmon have been observed in Bear Creek in Bear Creek Park!
Preserving Surrey's natural habitat for salmon and trout is a priority for many local schools, stewardship groups and government agencies. Join the building community of stream stewards in the City and participate in activities that will help protect and enhance stream habitat for local salmon and trout.
