Walking with Smolts Community Celebration

This Community Celebration has been held in recent years in April when the young salmon are leaving their natal streams to make the journey to the ocean. They will not be back for a few years and school-aged children and youth take an Interactive Walk along a trail to the Fraser River on a visual journey full of adventure.

Volunteers put together a fantastic program featuring science, music, dance, theatre, games, a traditional St'at'imc ceremony, and a picnic by the river.

The event is hosted by Lillooet Naturalist Society, Lillooet Salmon Talks, Cayoose Creek Sekw'el'was, Splitrock Environmental, community volunteers and other local organizations.
