Starting at 11 a.m., kids can pick up a Salmon Adoption Certificate outside West Vancouver Memorial Library then cross the street to release a juvenile salmon into the creek to begin its life in the wild.

Members of the West Vancouver Streamkeeper Society will be on hand to answer questions, provide information and assist with the release of the fish, which are raised by Department of Fisheries and Oceans staff at the Capilano River Hatchery.

Adopt-a-Fish is open to elementary-aged school children and their families and will proceed rain or shine. No registration is required.
