The kokanee spawning enhancement project on Mission Creek has received an additional boost from a $15,000 grant from the Habitat Conservation Fund.
The project initially received $31,000 from the fund, but extra excavation costs to complete the spawning channel through Mission Creek Park required more money.
Fish and game clubs in the area have also provided $17,000 for the project.
Good rates on machines and material, co-operation from the City of Kelowna, and dozens of volunteer workers have also helped the project.
Project supervisor Pat Field hopes to complete most of the work of building up the channel sides with rock within a week.
Kokanee spawners are expected to begin using the channel in large numbers within two weeks.
