Please join the Tri-City Branch of Engineers and Geoscientists BC for a tour of the Mossom Creek Hatchery Building. The tour will include an introduction to the building designs, materials, and hydrological processes. It will also be an opportunity to learn about the sustainable building features, its history, and marine ecosystem stewardship it provides.

The education centre caught fire 3 years ago and found its sponsors from many of the public and private sectors to re-build to its current state. It has many showcases of green and sustainable features, not forgetting its main intent—to enhance the marine biological cycle of the well-being of the Burrard Inlet.
