‘Heart of the Fraser’ film to be screened at Fraser Valley Salmon Society AGM

‘Come support the protection of the Fraser River and its delicate ecosystem,’ according to invite

Fraser Valley Salmon Society (FVSS) is inviting the public to a “rare viewing” of the film ‘The Heart of the Fraser’ at its AGM on April 21.

“Come support the protection of the Fraser River and its delicate ecosystem where millions of our Pacific salmon rear and travel through and where our mighty sturgeon roam and reproduce,” according to event organizers in their FVSS post.

The FVSS executive and the BCIT Rivers Institute are co-presenting the documentary film that sounds the alarm about the need to protect the environmentally sensitive gravel reach, from Hope to Mission. That’s the section of the river known as the “heart” of the Fraser, the most productive river in the world with five types of salmon and other many other fish species.

Following the extraordinary film, BCIT Rivers Institute officials Ken Ashley and Marvin Rosenau will take questions in a 15-minute Q&A session courtesy of the BCIT Rivers Institute and the Rudy North Foundation.

There is limited space in the meeting room for up to 99 people.

The FVSS AGM is at Evergreen Hall at 9291 Corbould Street on April 21, from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. The film runs 40 minutes.

Donations will be accepted, and there will be memberships, prize draws, snacks and refreshments available.

The film Heart of the Fraser was from NERVE Productions in partnership with Second Son Productions.
