Release the Fish in Hyde Creek

Hyde Creek Watershed Society

The Hyde Creek Watershed Society in Port Coquitlam works to preserve and enhance fish and wildlife in the Hyde Creek Watershed. Over their 12 year history they’ve had about 60 volunteer members working with them. They also engage in the greater community by participating in local activities and events to promote an understanding of our watershed and the flora and fauna within. They operate a salmon hatchery and they have a successful education program tailored to students from district schools as well as various other groups and organizations.

Those little salmon in the hatchery are getting bigger, and the time has now come to release them into Hyde Creek for their journey out to sea. On Saturday, April 25, 2015 from 10:00am to 3:00pm they will be doing just that at their Open House.

Stop by for some family fun learning about salmon and our natural environment. You’ll release salmon fry into Hyde Creek, see displays and murals, tour the hatchery and enjoy a craft in the Education Centre upstairs. There is also a hot dog BBQ.

The Hyde Creek Education Centre and Hatchery is located at 3636 Coast Meridian Road in Port Coquitlam. For more information about the society and this event visit or email

If you’d like to get involved the Hyde Creek Watershed Society is always on the lookout for more volunteers. You can join them any Saturday morning between 9:00am and 12:00pm for an informal tour of the facility, where you’ll have a chance to meet their members and view their on-going projects. If you like what they’re doing, we’re sure they’d love to have you.

To fish!
