This three-year grant will help the Lake Ontario Atlantic Salmon Restoration Program grow and improve our classroom hatchery program in schools in Durham Region and Northumberland County beginning with the 2019 season.
Minister Leal and Ontario Trillium Foundation volunteer Roy Wood will attend the event to formally recognize the grant, present a plaque, and see the delivery of 100 Atlantic Salmon eggs to one of the program’s longest participating schools.
