For insurance purposes, volunteers need to be members of Peninsula Streams Society. If you are not already a member, Friends of Swan Creek Watershed will pay for your membership. If you want to purchase a membership, here is the link: http://peninsulastreams.ca/purchase-a-membership

This is an exciting time of year, because a few weeks after this work is completed, we hope to see Coho salmon spawning around these sites!
