OUR PROGRAMS

NEW Outdoor Explorer Program for home learners.

We are excited to invite kids in grades 4, 5, or 6 to an outdoor ed-venture at Mossom Creek Hatchery and Education Centre this fall!

Held one day per week from September 29 – December 10, the Mossom Creek Outdoor Explorer Program provides a curriculum-based outdoor nature experience to home learners in grade 4, 5 or 6. Programs follow a COVID safety plan and are designed by certified teachers and nature experts to provide kids with unique hands-on learning opportunities in the beautiful Mossom Creek watershed. We seek to inspire youth to explore the natural world around them, to gain an understanding of the role they can play in their local ecosystem, and to provide fun and engaging activities to enhance their outdoor experiences.

Each weekly program takes place outdoors where kids can stretch their legs and their minds and develop a greater awareness of the natural world.

NEW Adult Programs

Covid-19 has changed many of our daily routines and meant limited interactions as we try and stay safe and healthy during this pandemic.

At Mossom we appreciate the day-to-day contributions to our programs and facility from our adult volunteers. In October we launched our Programs for Adults. These programs will be shaped around the gaps and opportunities that we see in our local community. All activities will be small group activities, practicing social distancing and outdoors whenever possible. We want to hear from you!

October is Coffee by the Creek!

Hatchery Program

For more than 43 years the Mossom Creek Hatchery site has been a place for students to assist with salmonid enhancement activities. We now have a thriving and active hatchery program that is managed by community volunteers as part of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Salmonid Enhancement Program (SEP). If you are interested in participating in this program, please contact us about regular weekday feeding opportunities.

SALMON SUNDAY VOLUNTEER PROGRAM

One of our longest-standing programs has been our Salmon Sunday volunteer program. Join us any Sunday, rain or shine, to visit the Mossom Creek Centre and help out with odd jobs, and learn about watershed stewardship and fish culture. The hatchery is located at the end of Mossom Creek Drive (up the 1 km gravel road). The gate is open each Sunday from 11:00 am – 1:30 pm.  We welcome visitors, casual and regular volunteers.  A great Sunday activity for friends and family, young and old! Please note, due to Covid-19 we are currently on a limited schedule and closed to drop-in visitors on Sundays.
