Hundreds of chum fry will make their way down Bowker Creek headed to the Salish Sea this month. Among them nearly 100 gently released by Glenlyon Norfolk School Grade 2 students. Two classes from the school on Beach Drive dipped cups into the waters of Bowker Creek on April 26, releasing the smolts they grew from eggs at school. Under the watchful eye of Bailey Stefani, marine education and outreach officer with Sequaria Ocean Education, students in small groups dipped cups with fry in them into the water gently ushering the fry into the waterway.
