Fish Programs

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 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, 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 community challenges on the Salmon Marshal Public Programs webpage that you can participate in which can help you find simple ways to help preserve habitat for fish species.
