PEACHLAND - Check out the displays and watch the Kokanee salmon spawning in Deep (Peachland) Creek during the ‘Welcome the Kokanee Salmon Festival’.
The free activities for every family member will be held Sunday, Aug. 7 between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. at Hardy Falls Regional Park along Hardy Street just off Highway 97 at the south end of Peachland.
A park interpreter will also be on hand to answer questions you might have about our land-locked salmon that’s a cousin of the Sockeye salmon.
This event is being moved to early August from its previously scheduled date of Aug. 28 because of the earlier than expected return of the spawning Kokanee to Deep Creek.
For more information visit the Regional District website here, or you can contact the EECO at 250-469-6140.
