The turning leaves and ripening fruit means it’s that time of year to learn about the land-locked cousin of the Sockeye!

Every Saturday and Sunday during the Kokanee salmon spawning season parks interpreters will be on hand at Mission Creek Regional Park and Hardy Falls Regional Park. They'll help you learn about the life cycle of Kokanee and help you understand the importance of the fall spawning ritual.

Interpreters will be at Hardy Falls Regional Park beginning Saturday, August 24, and at the Mission Creek Regional Park spawning channel beginning Saturday, September 7, to answer questions and share fishy knowledge about the Kokanee.

Please remember to stay on the trails and to be respectful of the wildlife and their habitat.
