Come and join the fun!

YES, the West Vancouver Adopt-A-Fish event is scheduled (🤞🏻) for Saturday April 23rd, 2022, at the Memorial Park, across from the Library on Marine Drive.

This is a two and a half-hour,rain or shine event between 10:30am and 1:00pm and is especially suitable for children 3 to 9 years old.

At 11:00am the West Vancouver Memorial Library will host a half-hour “Fishy Fun Family Storytime” in the Storytime on the outdoor Readers’ Rooftop. Any time after 11:00am, children will get their Adopt-A-Fish certificates from the Coho Society volunteers, just outside the Memorial Library. They, and their entourages, will then be escorted by street-crossers (yellow-vested West Vancouver Streamkeepers) and trail-tellers, to get their smolt from the big Fisheries & Oceans Canada fish-tank truck. With bright yellow pails in hand, adopters and their families will be led down the steps to the Centennial rearing pond, McDonald Creek and the Streamkeepers’ Village. There will be creek talkers,

the BIG map, colouring pages, educational displays, etc.

O Our day will end at 1:15pm – with everyone smiling !
