An opportunity to learn about the importance of improved connectivity in the Fraser River Estuary

Join us for a webinar discussing the upcoming North Arm Jetty Breaches Project with Metro Vancouver.

Join Dave Scott, Raincoast’s Lower Fraser Salmon Program Research and Restoration Coordinator, for an online information session about the upcoming North Arm Jetty Breaches Project and the importance of improved connectivity in the Fraser River Estuary. The session will include an opportunity for participants to ask questions and provide input on the project.

The event is on Thursday, May 27, 2021 from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.

Raincoast Conservation Foundation is working with Ducks Unlimited Canada and the South Coast Conservation Land Management Program to create up to three breaches in the Fraser Estuary North Arm Jetty.

The purpose of the breaches is to restore Fraser River Estuary tidal marsh habitat and improve access to this critical habitat for the benefit of juvenile salmon. The jetty extends from the northwestern tip of Iona Island, along the North Arm of the Fraser River. This project is aligned with the ecological restoration goals of the Iona Island Wastewater Treatment Plant Projects.

Metro Vancouver is supporting Raincoast’s project in several ways, including co-hosting this information session and sharing modelling information and data.
