Three local fishing conservation groups get grants

The Pacific Salmon Foundation has given grants to three local stewardship groups to help fund projects to restore and regenerate Pacific salmon.

Cowichan Lake and River Stewardship Society received $1,500 to purchase and print an information brochure about Cowichan Lake issues, to be distributed to all local landholders.

The Mill Bay and District Conservation Society received $1,500 to repair fencing and stairs in a work area where returning fish are counted.

Cowichan Community Land Trust Society received $1,500 to remove a ditch, and replace it with a pipe arch the same width as the channel.  The pipe arch will give fish access to habitat above a plugged culvert.
