This year marks the 30th Anniversary of the Quadra Island Salmon Enhancement Society (QISES). While salmon enhancing activities on the island had started earlier, it wasn’t until Jan. 1980 that the inaugural meeting forming the society was held, now making us one of the longest continuously functioning Salmon Enhancement Societies on the coast.
To celebrate this achievement, we will be hosting a ‘Burger and Dogs’ BBQ at the Eco-Center (the old hatchery site) on the Hyacinthe Bay Rd. on Sept. 5, from 1 to 4 pm. See the Eco-Center, displays with old photos, and hopefully hear some stories of the old days. Everyone is welcome.
