Raising a glass to salmon volunteers

Salmon enhancement volunteer organizations invited to apply for project funding by PWB.

  • Oct. 10, 2013 6:00 a.m.

Salmon enhancement volunteer organizations on North Vancouver Island are being invited to apply for project funding from the Pacific Western Brewing (PWB) Community Foundation.

The Foundation has established a $20,000 fund to support grassroots salmon enhancement initiatives in British Columbia.

“When our representatives visit communities on the coast they hear a common theme of concern about the pressing need to replenish our precious wild salmon stocks,” said Kazuko Komatsu, owner of the Prince George-based brewery. “Hundreds of tireless volunteers are working hard in B.C. communities to rebuild salmon stocks and rehabilitate streams. PWB wants to help.”

Applications should support the protection, conservation, enhancement or rehabilitation of Pacific salmon and their habitat. Projects can range from community-based stream-keeping and habitat rehabilitation to the enhancement of salmon stocks.

Applicants should represent volunteer-based organizations and are asked to provide information that assures PWB that their organization is qualified to undertake a project. Relevant permits or letters of support from appropriate government agencies such as Fisheries and Oceans Canada should be included with the application.

To submit an application go to PWB’s website home page (www.pwbrewing.com) and follow the prompt. The PWB Community Foundation will be adjudicating requests for support this fall.

For more information, call Brian Kieran at 250-203-7158.
