We will demonstrate the construction of a herring curtain and explain why such curtains are important to the Pacific Herring. There will be extra materials on hand for participants to help make a herring curtain, and these will be stored for usage next spring during spawning season. Making a herring curtain is easy, it’s quick and it’s important for the survival and revival of the pacific herring species!
Salish Sea kelp ecosystems are among the most vital and most threatened ecosystems in Canadian waters. Kelp forests are foundational and provide critical habitat and food for diverse species, including commercially, recreationally, and culturally valuable species. Kelp also provides vital ecosystem services, stabilizing shorelines, filtering water, mitigating storm surges, and capturing large quantities of carbon, helping to mitigate climate change and counteract ocean acidification. Join Lee-Ann Ennis as she tells her inspiring story of cultivating kelp for fish habitat and restoration projects.
