Taking a Stand for species at risk – Stoney Creek Place-Based Learning

Taking a Stand for species at risk

| Posted in Uncategorized


Students of Division 5 have been writing letters to the local MP, Terry Beech the Parlimentary Secretary to the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans. The letters have outlined learning about species of salmonids and the Nooksack Dace: an endangered species in our creek. Under the guidance of Mr. Smyth the students developed their knowledge and wrote letters to the MP to draw attention to the problems with sewage outflow into the creek because of so much development in the area. The cities of Burnaby and Coquitlam need to upgrade sewage pipes to keep up with high rise develpment. Hopefully there will be response to the young people who are exercising their civic responsibilities, and taking a stand for the species in Stoney Creek. Keep up the good work, Mr. Smyth and students of Division 5.
