Kids head off in the 2012 Great Salmon Run.

Contracted by the City of Surrey – Parks Department, to create a run event in┬áTynehead Park, as a showcase of the watershed and fish hatchery programs in the City.

Tynehead Park is 260 hectares in the heart of Metro Vancouver and has a major fish hatchery for the region on the Serpentine River.

We developed a 5km, 10km and Kids run event, showcasing the parks paths. The kids run ran down to the banks of the river, beside the hatchery, where each child was given the opportunity to release one fish into the river. Conservation agency and programs were on exhibition in the park.
