The focus of the Salmon Society will now be to develop a funding program to promote and support opportunities for education, interpretation and conservation of the cultural and natural values of Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park and to foster appreciation and improved knowledge of the sockeye salmon run.
The Society is also working to develop an annual interpretive program for local students and nature enthusiasts that takes advantage of the Society’s cabin in the park.
The Salmon Society is responsible for the administration of the Legacy Fund application process. The Legacy Fund is intended to achieve the following:
Funds are to be used for the purpose of:
a) Providing educational opportunities of a nature consistent with the Adams River Salmon Society.
b) For the improvement of recreational opportunities in the parks of the Shuswap.
c) For the conservation of salmon habitat.
d) Funding will be limited to a maximum of 50% of the project value. 50% of the project budget must be derived from in-kind contribution or other funders.
