Community Salmon Program

The Community Salmon Program funds volunteer community-led salmon conservation projects. Volunteers operate hatcheries, run classroom education programs and volunteer thousands of hours restoring and monitoring salmon habitat. On average, local communities raise $7 for every $1 granted through the program. Since 1989, the program has restored more than 1.1 million square meters of stream habitat and engaged 35,000 volunteers across B.C.
