While the Easter at the Cannery event scheduled for April 10-12 has been cancelled, the folks at the Cannery have devised ways you can celebrate at home!
Easter Salmon Scavenger Hunt:
This annual Scavenger Hunt inside the historic cannery is a special one. Kids look for ‘hidden’ coloured images of different stages of the Salmon Life Cycle, beginning with Eggs –> Alevin –> Fry –> Adult –> Spawner. As each stage progresses, the lower the number of pieces to find, just like the number of salmon in the wild at each stage of their life cycle. At the end of the hunt, collect the found pieces and exchange them for an Easter treat!
