On left, the Glen Valley Watersheds Society hosted their 11th annual chum salmon fish release on Saturday, April 14. This year they had help from the 1st Fort Langley Beavers and Cubs and their parents. The Glen Valley Watersheds Society has been releasing chum salmon into West Creek in partnership with Fisheries and Oceans Canada for the past 11 years. This event wouldn’t be so successful if it wasn’t for the dedication of volunteers and Stuart Bucholtz, the private landowner that lets the team descend on his property every year with buckets of fish.
