Wild Salmon Convergence 2014

The Wild Salmon Convergence was parallel to the Salute to the Sockeye event
that is being organized by the Adams River Salmon Society at Roderick Haig
Brown Park.

The purpose of the event was to bring people of all cultures together to
appreciate the beauty and grandeur of the Sockeye Salmon run in the Adams
River, and build capacity of various Wild Salmon and Water networks and
coalitions to link their campaigns, communication strategies, and organized
policy/advocacy efforts to food, farming and communities impacted by
mining.

The Wild Salmon need our help more than ever, and one way to do that is to
appreciate their beauty, strength and resilience in their journey home to
play out their birth and death in the Adams River – a river system with
some of the oldest geology in BC, and rich in culture and heritage to the
Secwepemc and all people who inhabit the region.
