Events at Noons Creek

Thank you for your interest in events held at the Port Moody Ecological Society’s Noons Creek hatchery.  We are a 100% volunteer-operated salmon hatchery, water quality testing and environmental stewardship facility.  We are located to the right of the Port Moody Recreation Centre’s hockey rink on Ioco Road, over the foot bridge.

The best way to learn about our upcoming events is via our facebook page, which is update regularly:  We are also on twitter and instagram @NoonsCreek.

Everyone is welcome for a tour of our facility.  We are open from Monday to Friday, between 9am and 11am.  Please call ahead if you are making a special trip as sometimes our volunteers are busy with the salmon or other projects in our community.

Our signature event is our Fingerling Festival, held on the first Saturday of each May at the Port Moody Recreation Centre and our hatchery, proudly supported for many years by the City of Port Moody, PCT and Port of Vancouver.  A fingerling is a juvenile salmon, about the size of your finger – get it?!  We have been holding this festival for over 25 years.  It’s great fun, with lots of activities for the kids, including our bucket brigade to help get the fish from our hatchery to Noons Creek.  Bring your camera!

We regularly host events at our Noons Creek hatchery.  In 2019, project manager, Tasha Faye Evans, will again be hosting the Port Moody Welcome Post Project throughout the year.

We also hold an annual Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup each summer along the Shoreline Trail from Orchard Park to Rocky Point.  Families and groups welcome.  Please register on their site.

J Peachy holds family friendly events at the hatchery, including breakfasts and artistic evenings.

We are always looking for volunteers to help us at the hatchery throughout the week and on Saturday mornings.  Feel free to drop by to see what we do and talk with us about how you can help out, or drop us a line at portmoodyecologicalsociety AT  Click here to contact us for more information.
