Sechelt Creek Celebration
"The shíshálh (Sechelt) Nation celebrated a record salmon return of more than 20,000 fish that came back to spawn in Sechelt Creek last week. The event at the creek-site up Salmon Inlet was also in celebration of the partnerships that made the historic return possible. The creek was enhanced by the shíshálh Nation and Regional Power back in 1997 after the power company installed a 16-megawatt hydro station on the waterway. On Sept. 6 members of the shíshálh Nation, Regional Power, local area politicians and special invited guests gathered at Sechelt Creek to tour the spawning channel, view new signage and artwork onsite and celebrate the project's success."
