PLEASE NOTE. THIS COURSE IS NOW FULL. WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.
This course is specifically focused toward youth streamkeepers. It will follow the same format as the Streamkeepers Course and all participants will receive a Streamkeeper certificate! Participants will learn a number of skills through both classroom sessions and hands-on field work on Quamichan Creek.
The course will be condensed from a 2-day course into a 1-1/2 day course, with the afternoon dedicated to participate in the Learn to Fish program. Learn to Fish is an exciting initiative designed to introduce participants to recreational fishing. The age specific, fun, and hands on lessons make it a perfect fit for youth and their families as well as organized groups of all ages and abilities.
This streamkeepers course will be held during Spring Break on Thursday and Friday, March 17 & 18, from 9am-4pm at the Kinsmen Hut in Art Mann Park. The cost for the course is $60 and includes lunch on both days. We ask that participants are ages 11+, due to the level of information provided within the course.
This course is also one of many events happening as part of Canada Water Week. Canada Water Week is a week-long celebration of water from coast-to-coast-to-coast, starting March 14 and culminating with World Water Day on March 22, 2011. Individuals, organizations and governments across the country are encouraged to get involved by organizing or participating in fun and educational events. Together, we will raise the profile and understanding of water and its importance to Canada’s prosperity.
