2018 Annual Thanksgiving Egg Take
October 6 and 7 10:00 - 3:30
This free, fun, family event is a great opportunity to get a close, hands-on, look at our local Chinook salmon. Some of the eggs collected will be taken to local schools where thousands of schoolchildren will also get hands-on experience raising these fish in their classrooms. Bring waders or gum boots, if you have some, and a lunch to enjoy on the scenic banks of the Shuswap River. We have waders to lend out but be forewarned that it is first come, first serve!
If you are interested in lending a hand or just observing, you will need to drive 25 km’s east of Enderby on Mabel Lake Rd. Continue 500m past the Interpretive Centre sign to the site on the river. You can’t miss it!
We are currently looking for volunteers who can help set up, check people in and clean up afterward.
Please call us at 250-838-0004 for more information.
Come visit us and explore the Shuswap’s rich biodiversity; discover the lifestyles of a wealth of local wildlife, plants, and human history in a natural setting and enjoy true hands-on biology and stewardship

DEBRIS SLIDE MAY 3 2014
During the very early hours of the morning on Friday, May 3 2014 the Kingfisher Interpretive Centre was hit by a huge debris flood that came down Cooke Creek.
Our buildings are still standing and are in good shape. The inside of the hatchery, intake pipes, the pond and the trails are seriously damaged but otherwise we made it through the deluge!
We were able to save well over half of our 26,000 Chinook fry as staff released them into the river early this morning.
We will be contacting all of our school groups who have tours booked this Spring. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please be advised that until further notice, all field trips have been rescheduled to take place at Belvedere Park in Enderby due to damage to KIC as the result of a flood/landslide on Cooke Crk.
