2012 Stewardship Community Bursary

25 Apr

The Pacific Salmon Foundation raises funds and directs funding to grassroots, volunteer and community-driven projects focused on the conservation and recovery of Pacific salmon. The Foundation supports research and science, then integrates this knowledge into program plans at the community and watershed level. The Foundation works with First Nations, private companies, educational institutions, non-profit groups, all levels of government, and commercial and recreational anglers to bring salmon back to our streams. The PSF and Salmon Enhancement Program volunteers raise funds each year to support two annual awards for students in need who volunteer in activities that benefit salmon in the wild.

In 2012, the financial contribution from the stewardship community has remained strong resulting in a minimum of two bursaries of $2,000.

For information please contact Dianne Ramage, Salmon Programs Director, or Jim Shinkewski, Salmon Programs Coordinator at 604 664-7664
