Join us for a canoe tour of Katzie Slough in Pitt Meadows April 24th
Take a tour down an ancient slough with Watershed Watch and partners on Friday April 24th at 5:30pm. The Katzie Slough in Pitt Meadows, named after the Katzie Nation in whose territory it is situated, was once an important waterway that connected the summer and winter villages from the banks of the Fraser to the banks of the Pitt Lake.
Travel a portion of the Slough with community members involved with the Katzie Slough Restoration Project including Slough Advocate Scott Magri and storyteller Jack Emberly. Ross Davies from the Kanaka Education and Partnership Society (KEEPS) will have dip nets and fish traps so canoeists can see what lies beneath the surface.
Watershed Watch is partnering with these local organizations to shine a light on those often forgotten yet incredibly important waterways that support growing salmon with food and habitat. The Katzie Slough with its engaged community members is testament to the power of people in building healthy, resilient, vibrant communities.
