The Wild Salmon Caravan – Celebrating the Spirit of Wild Salmon arrives in Williams Lake Sunday, May 10.
Events take place at the Chief Will-Yum Pow Wow Arbour starting at 6 p.m. with dinner and camping provided. Monday, May 11 the day starts with breakfast at 9 a.m. and the caravan leaving for Lillooet at 11 a.m.
The caravan was organized at the Wild Salmon Convergence in Chase in October 2014 by Dawn Morrison and Janice Billy of Neskonlith, Secwepemc.
The purpose of the caravan is to open people’s minds and hearts to the magnificent spirit of wild salmon, and to link coalitions and campaigns into a powerful collective force to protect salmon from various industrial activities, and to advocate for the restoration of healthy wild salmon cycles in the entire Pacific Coast from Alaska to California.
Following the progress of salmon smolts from the headwaters of the Fraser River to the Pacific Ocean, the Caravan is also making stops in Prince George, Clearwater, Lytton, Lillooet, Yale, Chilliwack, and Vancouver between May 10 and May 14.
