Installing Sponsored Salmon on Kus-kus-sum Fence

Date and Time



Kus-kus-sum Fence on 1901 Comox Road


We are looking for a few handy people to help install salmon signs that have been sponsored on the Kus-kus-sum fence. Prior to installation the wooden salmon will have to be coated with 3 coats of varathane. Some of the salmon may need holes drilled in them so that a wire can be inserted. Once the salmon are coated and drilled, they can be put on the fence with wire.

Volunteers will be given salmon, varathane, paint brushes, reflective vests, wire and wire cutters for this activity. The salmon will be handed over in batches as they are sponsored. The schedule for installing the salmon is flexible and will be developed with Caila Holbrook.
