Steelhead Society of BC Annual Thompson River Fundraiser
Posted on November 13th 2014, by Steelhead Society of BC
It's time for the annual Steelhead Society fundraiser!
We are proud to announce yet another habitat project on the Thompson River system. The project will take place on the Nicola River, and will have a direct measurable positive impact on steelhead numbers in the Thompson system.
At the project site, both sides of what once was the river's riparian area are heavily used by agriculture, having been logged and then cleared decades ago for that purpose. The river itself is subject to water draw down by agricultural and residential water users further exacerbating the issues at hand, which are loss of fish habitat. This project seeks to improve river conditions by preventing further erosion of an unstable bank, and the subsequent siltation/smothering of spawning gravels of the downstream area.
The past three years have seen fantastic support from the angling community for both the fundraiser and our work supporting wild steelhead in BC, and we thank you all so much as you continue to make these projects possible.
This is expensive work and we need help raising the funds again this year, so come out and support us!
The event will take place on December 3rd, 2014 at 7:00pm at Micky's Irish public house (170 Golden Drive, Coquitlam, British Columbia V3K 6T1).
Tickets are $20, which include a Burger and Beer and will be available upon entry. As always, there will be a raffle, 50/50 draw, as well as both live and silent auctions.
100% of the nights' proceeds will go towards this project on the Nicola River.
As always, we thank you for continued support and look forward to seeing you all there.
The SSBC is also accepting donations for in the form of both cash and items to be used for prizes, live and silent auctions for the night of the event, with all proceeds benefitting the Nicola project.
