A warm and sunny Saturday September 30 saw our 14th annual See the Salmon event, a celebration with 250+ people in attendance at the Foley farm. We featured conservation experts from the Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority, Georgian Bay Forever, The Pollinators, and the Georgian Triangle Anglers’ Association who shared their knowledge of fish migration and spawning, in an on-stream interactive format. There was also a giant inflatable salmon, wetland-themed interactive games, face painting, a Blue Mountains Fire truck and OPP community outreach, food by Hans Beach Bites and beer from the Collingwood Brewery. This year we also had fabulous live music provided by the band Deep Tracks.  Because September 30 was National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, Nancy Kay, a proud member of the Niisaachewan Anishiinaabe First Nation presented a thought-provoking acknowledgement of the day and a tribute to the land, the water and the salmon. All in all, a fantastic event, and we are already thinking about 2024. More pictures from See the Salmon
