Annual Salmon Run
As of 2016, Falls Brook Centre will be hosting an annual fundraising run to help support new programming that re-engages youth with salmon conservation.
Every summer, Atlantic salmon return to their natal freshwater streams to spawn. New Brunswick is home to many of these nursery streams, and salmon are an integral part of our province’s culture. However, as we become more disconnected from our environment, this species may become a fond memory. Populations have crashed and salmon habitat has been destroyed. In order to protect the salmon and their habitat in the future, we need to appeal to New Brunswick’s youth. Falls Brook Centre has a long history of delivering environmental education programming to youth across the Maritimes, and we feel that it is important to use our skills and experience to help protect this vital species.
Our Annual Salmon Run seeks to raise funds to support educational programming that re-connects New Brunswick youth with salmon conservation efforts. This year’s 1st Annual 5km Salmon Run will be hosted out of our satellite office at The Ville Cooperative in Fredericton, NB on June 26, 2016. In partnership with the Running Room, the run’s 5km route will wind along the banks of the Nashwaak River in Marysville.
