The online event for kids is designed for elementary school-age students. It includes videos, songs, games, and even an appearance from Toady, the Toadfest mascot.

The session for adults will focus on monitoring techniques and mitigation measures implemented at Summit Lake and the latest results, and you can test your knowledge about western toads and other amphibians.

The online sessions are hosted by the FWCP with support from the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development.

The FWCP is a partnership between BC Hydro, the Province of B.C., Fisheries and Oceans Canada, First Nations, and public stakeholders to conserve and enhance fish and wildlife in watersheds impacted by BC Hydro dams.
