To address the lack of understanding and increase citizen awareness of salmon and salmon habitat in Langley, LEPS hosted monthly Salmon Saturday events offering learning opportunities and participatory stewardship activities. These events improved salmon habitat and engaged the community in a series of regularly-scheduled environmental stewardship events. Generally held on the third Saturday of each month, the events were hosted in partnership with local stewardship groups and community partners, building community capacity while engaging citizens in activities to effectively address challenges related to sustaining healthy salmon populations. Through Salmon Saturdays, LEPS provided ongoing opportunity for citizen engagement in stewardship activities to raise community awareness and improve and enhance salmon habitats and watershed health. Our primary target audience for volunteer project participants in 2011 was families (adults with school-aged children) and youth (secondary and post-secondary students). The Salmon Saturday events that LEPS hosted in 2011 included: Streamside Invasive Species Removal, Juvenile Salmon Release, Instream Garbage Clean Up, Dig In Tree Planting, Storm Drain Marking Challenge, BC Rivers Day Festival, Salmon Meet and Greet, Dogs 4 Salmon, Frog Search, Greener Christmas Workshop, Greener Cleaner Workshop, and the Salmon Friendly Gardens Seminar. LEPS also hosted a display booth at a variety of community events to promote Salmon Saturday events.
