West Vancouver Streamkeepers

Nelson Creek Estuary Enhancements

Grant Program: Community Grants 2020

Funds: Ian and Rosemary Mottershead Fund

Grant Recipient: West Vancouver Streamkeepers

Project Goal: The goal of this project is to build a fish ladder at the mouth of Nelson Creek, to allow better access to spawning salmon. Nelson Creek was once a productive spawning stream but changes over the last 75 years have severely impacted fish access. 


Impact: With the recent good weather (October) and favourable tides the installation of the fish ladder is now substantially complete and ahead of schedule.
