Mossom Creek Hatchery is getting a helping hand from some Heritage Woods secondary students in a bid to win a BC Hydro Community Champion award.

The students, all in Grade 12 at the Port Moody school, managed to script, film and edit a video for the environmental group’s award submission, and in that the whirlwind effort over just six days, came to respect the work of Mossom volunteers.

“It’s crucial for a community to be vibrant to have places like these to enrich life here,” said Ethan Volberg, who produced the video, with Pierce Kinch narrating and Graeme Lyon helping write the script and do other tasks.

Lyon and Kinch had volunteered at the hatchery before and recently helped collect pink salmon eggs at Tenderfoot Creek near Squamish, and Volberg was a relative newcomer to the Port Moody hatchery and education centre.

But while he shot the video, Volberg said became impressed with the work and the way it encourages young people to learn about the environment. Now, he hopes the video will help the group win a $10,000 BC Hydro Community Champion award so it can continue to do this work.
