Kokanee Salmon Heritage Project

The Kokanee Salmon Heritage Project was developed as a result of the myriad of questions about Kokanee which arose during school and public interpretation talks at Mission Creek Spawning Channel, Kelowna, BC. The scientific authority for the project is Dr. Peter Dill, a researcher on trout and salmon in Canada for over forty years and on Kokanee in the Okanagan since the mid 1980s. The online project was developed by the Living Landscapes project of the Royal British Columbia Museum and the RBCM has granted permission to the Lake Country Heritage and Cultural Society to reproduce it on its website.
