Fresh gravel for the Redds.

img_20160924_094902On September 24, 2016, once again more than 20 BCWS volunteers pitched in with rakes, shovels, and wheelbarrows to distribute over 17 yards of spawning gravel into Brooklyn Creek. The gravel went into the new channel downstream of Noel Avenue next to Gaglardi Academy in Comox.

Creek enhancement volunteers

Happy volunteers after the work and free coffee and donuts.

The gravel is an important enhancement to the new channel which will hopefully provide habitat for spawning coho to build redds. Redds are trenches that the female salmon digs for her eggs placement.

Become a volunteer and get involved!
