Salmon to Sea fundraiser for CWFS this weekend

Central Westcoast Forest Society (CWFS) is pleased to announce our 4th annual Salmon to Sea Fundraiser taking place on Friday June 27th 2014 at Black Rock Oceanfront Resort in Ucluelet. The Salmon to Sea Fundraiser is a celebration of the efforts made by CWFS in regard to salmon habitat restoration. Spring is a very important time in the life cycle of salmon; eggs have hatched in the natal streams and the tiny salmon have developed from alevin into fry and are now going through an important transformation into smolts as they prepare for their big journey from freshwater streams and lakes into the ocean! CWFS is monitoring this out migration of salmon from Lost Shoe Creek to Florencia Bay. CWFS Biologist Dani Francis is checking the smolt traps daily from May-June 15th. Dani and her amazing team of local volunteer’s record important information on the species, size, weight, health and development of the smolts as they make their journey downstream. This research will provide integral information in regard to salmon populations here on the West coast, facilitating a greater understanding of the salmon survival and health, and habitat quality. This year all proceeds from our fundraiser will go directly towards funding CWFS 2015 Smolt Trap Project! The Salmon to Sea Fundraiser is an evening of delicious food, drinks, silent auction, bluegrass music courtesy of The Poor Pistols and The Lonely Heartstring Band, dancing, and socializing, and we invite all who are interested to come and attend! Tickets are available on June 9th at Black Rock Resort, CWFS office in Ucluelet, and at Surf Sister in Tofino. If you wish to donate or for more information please go to clayoquot.org
