NEW 2020 Summer Camp
We are excited to invite kids ages 9-12 to an outdoor summer ed-venture at Mossom Creek Hatchery and Education Centre!
If you’ve ever wanted to learn why flying squirrels only come out at night, why a tailed frog has a tail or why a stink currant plant doesn’t stink, this summer ed-venture is for you. Our weekly summer learning camps pack 3 hours of outdoor nature experiences into each day. Programs follow a COVID safety plan and are designed by certified teachers. Learn more and register!
School programs for k-12
We provide programs for k-12 students, designed to compliment the new BC Education Curriculum. To learn more about programs for your school group, check out our program descriptions here.

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.
