Salmon at the hatchery year round!

Thanks to our fantastic volunteers who created this salmon that is on permanent display outside our hatchery in Shoreline Park in Port Moody, with part funding from the DFO.

Drop by the hatchery any time for a tour and a chat; we are open Monday to Saturday, from 9 – 11am.  If you are making a special visit, please call us at 604-469-9106 as sometimes our volunteers are out and about.  We are a 100% volunteer operated salmon hatchery, water quality laboratory and stewardship registered charity.  If you are interested in volunteering with us, please email portmoodyecologicalsociety @ hotmail.com.

  • This cleanup is family friendly and a great team event – help out for as long as you’d like.  We get that some people only have 30 minutes to spare. 🙂
  • Please register online.
  • Bring three shopping bags – one for garbage, one for recycling and one for cigarette butts
  • Record and separate as you go!  It can be very messy to go through garbage when you return to the hatchery:  insert ugly crying here 🙁
  • Bring gloves and boots (we have a very limited supply)
  • Wear clothes that can get dirty and possibly wet – not white!  Trust us on this one.
  • Stay out of the mud!  Port Moody Fire thanks you.
  • Do not pick up dead animals – record the details of the type and location only.
  • Stay well away from the railway tracks – it is illegal (and stupid) to play on the tracks.
  • If it’s in the mud, leave it.  It may now be home to marine animals.  Record the type and location and we will investigate.

We will be collecting cigarette butts separately and sending them to Terracycle Canada for recycling.

How Do We Get to Noons Creek Hatchery?

Everyone is encouraged to carpool, use public transit or cycle to our events as parking can be very limited if there are other activities going on at the Port Moody Recreation Centre.  We are located over the footbridge that leads into the park to the very right of the ice rinks.

For additional information, phone the hatchery at 604-469-9106 any time from Monday to Saturday, 9:00 – 11:00am.
