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.

To celebrate the end of the year, we are so happy to be able to offer matching campaigns on two of our most pressing fundraising initiatives.

All donations to both the Southern Great Bear Rainforest tenure acquisition and our KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest initiative, will be matched until the end of the year. This is a great opportunity for our supporters, like you, to make your impact go twice as far, while benefiting from tax deductions.

Help us secure KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest on S,DÁYES (Pender Island). Together with Pender Islands Conservancy, Raincoast is raising $2.18 million to purchase a 45 acre coastal property on the edge of the Salish Sea.
