Salmon Preservation Fund

The Salmon Preservation Fund (or SPF) is an extension of the Powell River Salmon Society, designed to generate and manage assets which contribute to future sustainability of Powell River hatchery operations. While government support is distributed provincially and nationally, SPF funding stays local to the Powell River community.

Our Mission

To generate and manage assets that contribute to the future self- sustainability of the Powell River Salmon Society hatchery operations.

Our Vision

To provide ongoing financial assistance to allow the Powell River Salmon Society to maintain their operations and its effort to restore, enhance, protect and increase awareness of Pacific Salmon in our local ecosystem and keep their numbers healthy and returning to  spawn each year.

Our Effort

The Salmon Preservation Fund contributes to the financial backbone of the Powell River Salmon Society  though ongoing fundraising and awareness initiatives such as the annual Tide Guide and the Salmon Preservation Festival. Keep up with our projects and updates to learn more.

Our Projects

New projects are always underway with the Salmon Preservation Fund. The more our community works together with the SPF, the more support we can offer to the life cycle of Pacific Salmon.

Tide Guide

The annual Powell River Tide Guide is one of the Salmon Preservation Fund’s most important fundraising initiatives in support of the Powell River Salmon Society. For a small donation, you can pick up a copy at many outlets in the Powell River area.

Salmon Preservation Festival

In the fall the Salmon Preservation Fund holds its annual festival at the Alex Dopler Centre at the Lang Creek spawning channel in Powell River. Join us for fun, food and the educational opportunity to learn about the life cycle of our Salmon and what the Powell River Salmon Society is doing in Salmon conservation and enhancement.

***Due to the current Covid 19 pandemic and the restrictions surrounding the safety of  public gatherings we are monitoring the situation and will weigh our options regarding our festival  in a manor that respects the prescribed guidelines from our health authorities and prioritizes the safety of our community. We Sincerely thank-you for your patience and understanding.
