Thank you to all who attended our cleanup on the fishway at Hefler Falls – the over-winter conditions on the river were kind to us and the cleanup went very well (and quickly). Now we are ready for the salmon and other species to start running up the fishway!
Thank you to Councillor Lisa Blackburn, District 14 – Middle/Upper Sackville – Beaver Bank – Lucasville, for the support of our Fish Friends program through supplying funds towards the purchase of a digital microscope for the program.
SRA will be performing our annual fishway cleanup on the river next to Hefler Forest Products on Lucasville Road on Saturday April 29th from 9am to 1pm. We are seeking volunteers to help close off flow to the fishway and to clean debris out of the structure – we will supply tools and waders, but equipment is in limited supply so please bring what you have. Weather and river conditions permitting of course, so rainfall prior to this event will likely cause the date to be adjusted until conditions are suitable.
For further information give us a call or send us an email – http://sackvillerivers.ns.ca/contact/
