About the Program
It is 1918, four years after the devastating rockslide at Hell’s Gate that blocked millions of Fraser River salmon from reaching their spawning grounds. The low salmon stocks are threatening the future of the fishing industry. In a mock commission, students will use their communication skills and creative thinking to save our salmon. The 1914 Hell’s Gate disaster provides an example of the complexities of natural resource management that is still relevant today.
What to Wear
The Cannery is a historical site built on top of water, and does not have indoor heating. Please dress warmly! It can be very cool inside even when the temperature is pleasant outdoors.
The interpreters appreciate student name tags to help with asking questions, but this is not a requirement.
