SEP Community Workshop 2015
Port Alberni, BC, May 2015

SEP Volunteer Workshop

Congratulations to the organizers and hosts of Workshop 2013. We had a committed team who have been involved in the undertaking of these workshop before, and our volunteers were very successful in working within this team.

Our team included volunteers from the Bowen Island Fish and Wildlife Society, Bowen Island Streamkeepers. North Shore Streamkeepers, Seymour Salmonid Society, West Vancouver Streamkeepers, Pacific Streamkeepers Federation and four local CA's. We highlighted DFO BMP's for fish husbandry, streamkeeper monitoring protocols and education that works.

A Brief History on SEP Community Workshops

May 3-5, 1991, the first SEP Community Conference was held in Port Hardy, BC, in order to recognize the enhancement community. The focus was to be on the volunteers and their contribution to the Pacific fishery (although it was open to anyone to attend).
This tradition continued on a biennial basis and the next SEP Community Workshop was held June 4-6, 1993, in Port Moody. The purpose of the workshop expanded to provide volunteers with a chance to learn new skills, share ideas, and have fun!
Thereafter, the event has continued to present, celebrating community participation and showcasing local fisheries, watershed stewardship, and conservation initiatives.
