Somber News regarding Mossom Creek Fish Hatchery

So sorry to hear the news today of the fire at Mossom Creek Hatchery. Our thoughts are with all those who tirelessly devoted their time.

‘The Port Moody Station Museum and Port Moody Heritage Society’ 


Please see the note attached from President of Noons Creek Hatchery, Sandra Niven.

 ‘Good morning,

We were deeply saddened to hear of the loss of our sister hatchery at Mossom Creek. Ruth Foster and Rod McVicar and a team of volunteers have been working tirelessly for nearly 40 years to educate our children in the importance of protecting our environment and providing an essential service to our community by providing a place of warmth and love for all.

What can we do?  To help rebuild, people may deposit directly into their account at any TD Canada Trust branch, account 539-5000965; businesses can be issued receipts. Note that they will not be doing door-to-door donation requests.

If you have photos or newspaper clippings (they lost all of their albums and scrapbooks in the fire), please forward digital images to
or post to:
Sandra Niven Port Moody Ecological Society 300 Ioco Road Port Moody BC V3H 2V7

A fundraiser will be announced in the New Year once the shock and sadness have eased.

On behalf of the Port Moody Ecological Society (Noons Creek hatchery) board and volunteers,

Sandra Niven
