The Wild Salmon Caravan is Coming to Vancouver this Saturday

Hello Vancouver Food Policy Friends,

The Wild Salmon Caravan is coming to Vancouver this weekend, and we hope you can join in the festivities – as a participant, volunteer, or both!

The Caravan is an annual celebration that follows and celebrates wild salmon as they migrate all the way from the Salish Sea to the Adams River. It stops in communities along the way, and will begin in Vancouver on Saturday, September 22 with a lively splash of creativity and cultural expressions of reverence for wild salmon. We hope to see you there!
